Gillmore, Parker

Tagged: Author

(1835-1900) UK soldier, hunter and author, mostly of travel books published 1869-1896, often as by Ubique. His sf novel, The Amphibion's Voyage (1885), is a tale shaped suspiciously like a travelogue, but manages to evoke some interest for the eponymous amphibious vehicle, which carries its passengers through Africa into encounters with a sea Monster or two.
