ROBINSON, E(dward) A.
(? -?)
   US writer in whose The Disk: A Tale of Two Passions (1884; vt The Disk: A Prophetic Reflection 1884 UK), with G(eorge) A. Wall, a series of inventions - optical cables capable of harnessing the Sun's light, imperishable food, disease-eliminating injections - plays second fiddle to a tale of sexual passions. The inventions are effective.
