DOUGLASS, Ellsworth

DOUGLASS, Ellsworth
   Probably the pseudonym of Elmer Dwiggins (? -?), about whom little is known. ED wrote "The Wheels of Dr Ginochio Gyves" (1899 Cassell's Magazine), about a gyroscopically controlled space vessel, with Edwin PALLANDER. His sf novel, Pharoah's Broker: Being the Very Remarkable Experiences in Another World of Isidor Werner (Written by Himself) (1899 UK), is an interplanetary romance set on MARS, where parallel EVOLUTION has resulted in a society almost identical to that of Egypt in the time of Joseph. In the end the hero, having been a grain-broker in Chicago, is able to take on Joseph's role.
