Forrest, Henry J

Tagged: Author

(1823-1899) UK compositor, printer's reader, journalist and author of an early sf Utopia, A Dream of Reform (1848), which tamely introduces the usual visitor to a mildly socialist planet designed on anti-industrial lines. The book is thus a vague precursor to the work of William Morris. [JC]
