Godwin, George Stanley

Tagged: Author

(1889-1974) UK lawyer and author, in Canada between 1911 and 1916, prophetically lamenting in his first novel, The Eternal Forest Under Western Skies (1929), the failure of Canadian society to merit its occupancy of the land it had been granted; most of his work is nonfiction on various topics. Of sf interest is Empty Victory (1932), in which the UK and France stupidly engage with each other in a 1951 Future War. [JC]
