Forbes, Alexander

Tagged: Author

(1882-1965) US author whose sf novel, The Radio Gunner (1924) as Anonymous, depicts a Future War set in 1937 between Northern Europe, in alliance with the USA, and the Constantinople Coalition. Forbes's predictive powers were not strong, and his eponymous hero, who knows how to locate radio equipment with his special device, fails to enthral. [JC]
