Tagged: Author

(1892-1976) Austrian poet and author of an sf novel, Zodiak (1930; trans Eric Sutton 1931), which takes a dim view of the glorification of technical progress, espousing instead a youthful ascent towards a higher world governed on Pax Aeronautica principles (see also Transportation). [JC]
