Pseudonym of US Unitarian minister and author Minot Judson Savage (1841-1918), whose At the Back of the Moon; Or, Observations of Lunar Phases (1879), a spoofish verse Satire in which a group of touring Lunarians, after conveying to the narrator of the tale their sense of life on the Evolution of life on Earth, return to the back side of the Moon, where they inhabit a topsy-turvy world which the narrator describes bemusedly. Some of Savage's works under his own name contain spiritualist assertions about life after death. [JC]
