Harris, J Henry

Tagged: Author

(1875-1962) UK author whose uneasily fin-de-siècle sf novel, A Romance in Radium (1906), follows the investigative journey to Earth of a feathered and winged female Alien named Ma-Myliita, a member of the angel-like Murani from 100,000,000 miles away; her people are confused as to why Murani visitors, who arrived 5000 years earlier, remained on our planet and became mortal. The answer is Sex – or, as Harris puts it, marriage. Angels, it seems, cannot get enough of marriage. [JC]
