Aldrich, Thomas Bailey

Tagged: Author

(1836-1907) US author best-known for Story of a Bad Boy (1879); he was also responsible for Pansy's Wish: A Christmas Fantasy, with a Moral (1869), which was fantasy. Out of his Head, a Romance (coll of linked stories 1862) and The Queen of Sheba (1877) are early examples of the marginal subgenre of sf in which contemporary explorations in Psychology suggest storylines ranging from Amnesia to metempsychosis (and ultimately, it might be added, channelling).
