BLYTH, James
(1864-1933)
   UK writer, a fairly prolific author of popular fiction who is best remembered in the field for The Tyranny (1907), a NEAR FUTURE tale of a UK dominated by a tyrant and at war with Germany. Ichabod (1910), which is defaced by an antisemitism that seemed "robust" even for the UK of 1910, grants victory to the UK against an unholy alliance of Jews and Germans through a MATTER TRANSMITTER and a machine which reads malign thoughts. The Shadow of the Unseen (1907) with Barry PAIN, a tale of the supernatural, was infused with JB's love of the motor car.
