WILSON, (John) Grosvenor


WILSON, (John) Grosvenor
(1866-?)
   US writer in whose sf novel, The Monarch of Millions, or The Rise and Fall of the American Empire (1900), a 1950s USA is strictly organized according to wealth, with the Emperor richest of all; the sciences have advanced remarkably but the people remain potentially restive, and young Demos from Alaska is able to topple the old plutocracy. Unfortunately - despite this cosmetic democratization - the powerstructure remains intact. The book's cynicism tends to neutralize some of the foggy allegory.
