(? -? ) UK author of an anti-feminist Satire, When the Women Reign: 1930 (1909), whose protagonist awakes (see Sleeper Awakes) in Near Future 1930, where the disastrous consequences of allowing female suffrage (see Feminism; Women in SF) are all too evident; eventually, the men revolt, and the women, having learned their lesson, return happily to their domestic duties. Though its circulation was limited (the publisher Arthur H Stockwell was a vanity press) the tale aroused mild attention. [JC]
