Pseudonym of UK author George Makgill (1868-1926), whose Future War novel, The Red To-Morrow (1920), traces the consequences of a 1942 war against Germany, as Jews and immigrants riot in the streets of London, almost bringing down a decent government. There are moments of Satire throughout, directed at targets, including George Bernard Shaw, whom the author saw as culpable members of the intellectual left. An earlier tale, Outside and Overseas: Being the History of Captain Mungo Ballas, Styled of Ballasburn, in the Shire of Fife; with some Account of his Voyages, Adventures, and Attempts to Found a Kingdom in the South Seas as Told by his Nephew and Namesake, Mungo Ballas, Last of the Race and House of the Name (1903) as George Makgill, marginally combines the Fantastic Voyage and the Utopia.
