Marshall, Luther

Tagged: Author

(?   -?   ) US author of Thomas Boobig: A Complete Enough Account of his Life and Singular Disappearance: Narration of his Scribe (1895), an sf novel depicting – perhaps for the first time – a genuine Superman, the eponymous Boobig who is born of natural size but soon grows into a mental and physical giant (see Great and Small). His great good temper seems to ensure that his influence on his native California as a Paul Bunyan-like entrepreneur are beneficial; but he disappears into a bottomless cavern. [JC]
