HANNAN, Robert Charles


HANNAN, Robert Charles
(? -?)
   UK writer whose first sf novel, The Betrothal of James (1898), attempts to extract some humour from the fact that female cats must be sacrificed in the production of a rejuvenation pill. Thuka of the Moon (1906), a fantasy in which lunar deities amuse themselves by creatingvarious humanlike beings, awkwardly prefigures Philip Jose FARMER's World of Tiers POCKET-UNIVERSE sequence. In The Electric Man (performed 1906; 1910 chap), a play, a primitive ROBOT is mistaken for the hero, withfarcical consequences.
