Pseudonym of US author Lottie F Ambrose (?   -?   ), whose Two Heroes and a Violin: An Extravaganza (1899) is a supernatural fiction. The protagonist of her sf novel The Centaurians (1911) travels with his Scientist friend in a torpedo-like ship of the latter's Invention to the North Pole and beyond, arriving in a clement Lost World where they sight what seems to be a Counter-Earth. They are taken by members of a primitive tribe to the City of the dark-complected Centaurians (see Race in SF), who display their much advanced Technology and science, and who inform the visitors that the world in the sky is in fact the tenuous aftermath of a destroyed planet. After failing to win the heart of a Princess, the narrator returns to the normal world. [JC]
