Tagged: Author

(1872-1945) US lawyer and author, most famous for "Desiderata", a 1927 poem translated from a seventeenth-century Latin text, which sets down a range of homilies about living the good life; it was published in various formats. Of sf interest is A Fearsome Riddle (1901), in which a Mad Scientist explores more deeply than is wise the mysteries of Time, in an ultimately disastrous attempt to control it. [JC]
