Tagged: Author

(?   -?   ) UK author of It May Happen Yet: A Tale of Bonaparte's Invasion of England (1899), a self-published but frequently noted work of what may be an early Alternate History or – as Darko Suvin argues in Victorian Science Fiction in the UK: The Discourses of Knowledge and Power (dated 1983 but 1984) – an example of "forgotten history", as Napoleon's Invasion in 1805 turns out to be inconsequential.
