George Griffith, full name George Chetwyn Griffith-Jones, was a
prolific British science fiction writer and noted explorer who
wrote during the late Victorian and Edwardian age. Many of his
visionary tales appeared in magazines such as Pearson's Magazine
and Pearson's Weekly before being published as novels. Griffith was
extremely popular in the United Kingdom, though he failed to find
similar acclaim in the United States, in part due to his
revolutionary and socialist views. A journalist, rather than
scientist, by background, what his stories lack in scientific
rigour and literary grace they make up for in sheer exuberance of
execution. "To-night that spark was to be shaken from the torch of
Revolution, and to-morrow the first of the mines would
explode...the armies of Europe would fight their way through the
greatest war that the world had ever seen." - from Griffith's most
famous novel The Angel of the Revolution
