Fowler, George

Tagged: Author

(?   -?   ) US author – his identity is uncertain – of an early American example of Proto SF, A Flight to the Moon; or, The Vision of Randalthus (1813); though it is an angel which transports the protagonist to the Moon in what turns out to be a dream. Randalthus's observations are rationalist within that frame, and include speculations on Evolution and the death of the Sun, which he also visits. [JC]
