Lawrence, C E

Tagged: Author

(1870-1940) UK editor and author, of whose several novels, most of them fantasy, two are of sf interest: The Trial of Man: An Allegorical Romance (1902) anonymous, a mildly Equipoisal tale whose protagonist travels to the Moon and subsequently to heaven where the Angel Zuron assigns him a new planet where he breeds sinlessly with a new Eve (see Adam and Eve), but then fatally boasts of his virtue; and Mr Ambrose: The Story of a Distinguished Visitor to Clapham and Elsewhere (1922), featuring the visit of an Alien to England, to some Satirical effect.
