Wentworth-James, Gertie de S

Tagged: Author

Working name of UK author Gertrude Wentworth-James (1874-1933), born Gertrude Soilleux Webster, who sometimes wrote as Gertie S Wentworth-James. Some of her fifty or more flirtatious but ultimately decorous romances contain elements of sf interest, beginning with The Soul That Came Back (1922), a tale of Reincarnation. In the Near Future The Television Girl (1928), an osteopath falls in love with a young woman who appears accidentally on the screen of his telephone (see Communications); she turns out to be a wrong number, but the plot thickens.
