(? -? ) US journalist and author of The Awakening of Noahville (1898) a spoofish sf adventure tale, almost certainly derived from Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889), in which two vagabonds become the scamp hirelings of Carolus Rex, ruler of a Lost Race kingdom somewhere adrift of New Mexico. There is a Robot, and Inventions galore, but modernization is resisted, and all ends in a slapstick War. [JC]
