(?1850s-?after 1938) UK author whose Mental Travels in Imagined Lands (coll 1878) contains a series of tales set in heavily allegorized Utopian settings, including Fortuneland and Nomunniburgh. Of more direct sf interest is Depopulation: A Romance of the Unlikely (1899), set in a moderately Near Future America, in the city of Minosa where Trusts (dedicated to population growth) are opposed by the protagonist and his union. The latter win out in the end. [JC]
