Kellett, E E

Tagged: Author

(1864-1950) UK schoolmaster and author, in whose one work of fiction, A Corner in Sleep and Other Impossibilities (coll 1900), some stories of sf interest can be found: mainly perhaps "The New Frankenstein" (May 1899 Pearson's), the facetious tale of a Robot entangled in a web of useless Inventions, and "Memoria Ponderosa", about an experimental Memory Edit that goes wrong. A later tale, "How I Won the Derby" (June 1909 Pearson's), features a mechanical horse that wins the race in question. [JC]
