- ELLIS, T(homas) Mullett
- (1850-1919)UK poet and writer whose sf novel, Zalma (1895), features the protracted NEAR FUTURE attempts of the eponymous wrong-side-of-the-bed Russian-Spanish princess to revenge herself on the heir to the throne of England, who has for unclear reasons swiftly annulled their morganatic marriage. Anthrax-bearing balloons are brought into play, and the tale closes on a possible Europe-wide socialist upheaval.JCSee also: WEAPONS.
