Tagged: Author

(?   -?   ) US author of The Wonders of Mouseland (1901), which combines Beast Fable [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below] and Fantastic Voyage in the story of a sailor shipwrecked on a Pacific Island whose mouse inhabitants have built a civilization from data brought back by their spies from human lands. There is some resemblance to Frederick Philip Grove's Consider her Ways (1947) and Stefan Themerson's Professor Maa's Lecture (1953). [JC]
