Tagged: Author

(1854-1922) UK author (in his early career) who later became a naval historian (partly for reasons of social prestige). He is the author of a Lost Race tale, Kophetua the Thirteenth (1889 2vols), which describes the ancient Christian kingdom of Oneiria, a Utopia founded in Africa by an Englishman; notably, this utopia, based on a reform of Money, contains within it a Dystopian enclave, where those unfit for the higher life are relegated.
