Tagged: Author

Working name of US journalist and author Kenneth Brown (1868-?   ), some of whose work was set in a romanticized Orient; his Young Adult sf novel, Two Boys in a Gyrocar: The Story of a New York to Paris Motor Race (1911), on the other hand, stays closer to home, depicting a Near Future aerial contest whose young protagonists' Invention allows them to traverse the Atlantic by air. It is believed that this is the first fictional description of a gyrocar. [JC]
