FOLINGSBY, Kenneth


FOLINGSBY, Kenneth
   A possible pseudonym of a probable Scotsman whose Meda: A Tale of the Future (1891), though the events it recounts turn out to be a dream, remains of interest for the imaginative scope of the AD5575 depicted, in which large-headed brainy "Scotonians" are fed by ambient electricity, possess ANTIGRAVITY, and represent the end of a long (and detailed) world-history, including a comet HOLOCAUST. The protagonist begins to have erotic longings, and awakens.
