BORDEN, Mary
(1886-1968)
   US-born writer and journalist, in the UK for the last half-century of her life. After funding and running a field hospital in WWI, she began to write novels and nonfiction, some of the latter being of FEMINIST interest. Her sf novel, Jehovah's Day (1928), is a fable about the emergence of humanity, carrying its narrative from the earliest times to a NEAR FUTURE catastrophe which destroys London. Throughout, the mysterious figure of Eryops the Mud Puppy makes emblematic appearances.
