Churchill, R C

Tagged: Author

(1916-1986) UK literary historian whose A Short History of the Future: Based on the Most Reliable Authorities With Maps (1955), like John Atkins's Tomorrow Revealed (1955), is an imaginary History, in this case set about 7000 CE, and similarly draws on genuine contemporary sources, mainly George Orwell and other literary figures like Kurt Vonnegut, into an unusually witty accounting of the course of history; in Churchill's version, history comes in great cycles.
