SCHUYLER, George S(amuel)
(1895-1977)
   US writer whose sf, normally written as by Samuel I. Brooks, appeared obscurely in PULP MAGAZINES between the Wars. In his first sf novel, Black No More: Being an Account of the Strange and Wonderful Workings of Science in the Land of the Free, A.D. 1933-1940 (1931) as GSS,a cosmetic treatment is discovered which will bleach Blacks. In treating this innovation in terms of SATIRE GSS, himself Black, acerbically targeted both Blacks and Whites. Black Empire (1936-8 Pittsburgh Courier as by Samuel I. Brooks; 1991), intro by John A. WILLIAMS, pits Blacks against Whites in pulp terms, and ends in the creation of a Black UTOPIA.
