LANE, Mary E. Bradley
(? -?)
   US writer of whom nothing is known other than that she may have been the author of Mizora: A Prophecy: A Mss. Found Among the Private Papers of Princess Vera Zarovitch: Being a True and Faithful Account ofher Journey to the Interior of the Earth, with a Careful Description of the Country and its Inhabitants, their Customs, Manners and Government (Cincinatti Commercial 1880-81; 1890 anon; 1975, with 2 prefaces, as byMary E. Bradley Lane). This obscure, part-radical, part-conservative UTOPIA is set mainly within a HOLLOW EARTH, where an all-woman society (FEMINISM) whose children are produced by parthenogenesis has an advanced technology and stringent laws: they have eliminated brunettes and all men, and by eugenics have produced a race of blonde superwomen. With men gone, crime is gone. The book is notable for the ruthlessness of its social speculations, quite extreme for 19th-century utopian writing.
