Grogan, Gerald

Tagged: Author

(1884-1918) Scottish author who served in World War One from as early as 1915; killed 1918. His sf novel, A Drop in Infinity (1915), carries its unwilling protagonists via a Mad Scientist's Matter Transmission device into an empty but congenial Parallel World. A lengthy Robinsonade evolves during which the protagonists become reconciled to their lot, have children, survive a crisis and find themselves finally isolated from Earth. The tale is told by one of their descendants. [JC]
