Pseudonym of the unidentified author (? -? ) of King Squash of Toadyland (1890), a Satirical portrait of Britain during the course of which party politics are eliminated and the King deposed, creating something like a Utopia. Any presumption that the tale is set in the Near Future because it is not Queen Victoria who loses the throne perhaps insists too strongly that the tale is meant to be read literally. [JC]
"An Envoy Extraordinary"
