Fleming, A M

Tagged: Author

(1858-1948) US author known mainly for his sf-like Munchausen tale, Captain Kiddle: A Fantastic Romance (1889), in which the captain recounts to an interviewer his trip to the Arctic, where he and his crew are imprisoned by Lost Race of giants (see Great and Small), but escape and – after experiences with the Fountain of Youth and a very large serpent – discover an ancient City at the North Pole and fly back to civilization on a tame giant bird. His further novels are pure tall-tale fantasies with no sf content. [JC]
