Haedicke, Paul

Tagged: Author

(1852-1903) German soldier and journalist who spent much of his career in the US, usually as a foreign correspondent for German papers; his sf novel, The Equalities of Para-Para, Written from the Dictations of George Rambler, M.D., F.R.G.S. (1895), set in a hidden, egalitarian Lost World in darkest Africa, is a Satire on the uniformitarian implications of a socialist Utopia whose egalitarianism is enforced by surgery designed to standardize the populace, though inter alia there are moments when Para-Para seems almost attractive.
