Kilpatrick, Florence A

Tagged: Author

(1888-1968) UK playwright and author best known for her Elizabeth sequence of spoofish adventures featuring a slapstick but spunky Cockney lass; of sf interest in the series is Elizabeth in Africa (1940), where she runs across a Lost Race of Egyptians who remain hidden in a remote valley. Luckily for Elizabeth, the Mtangulizis have already been taught English by a previous visitor. [JC]
