Kayser, Martha

(1871-?   ) US author whose Utopia, The Aerial Flight to the Realm of Peace (1922), features a form of Space Flight (see also Balloons) to a planet much like Earth except that everyone is united in a kind of conflict-free family inspired by conflict-free worship in a single Supreme Being. Faith (1931; rev vt Heaven Is Here 1938 as M C Kayser) as Martha Cabanné Kayser promulgates a similar outcome, but without the trappings. Kayser seems to have adapted Faith at least twice for the theatre, but no published versions have been satisfactorily traced. [JC]
