Rice, Harry E

(?   -?   ) US author of Eve and the Evangelist: A Romance of A D 2108 (1908), a Utopia set in distant Near Future America, according to strict financial criteria (see Economics) that limit personal wealth to $50,000; great advances in Transportation are described at some length, as well as intercontinental travel by either by Rocket using a new Power Source or Underground, and Communication with Mars has been achieved. Much is learned from the gigantic, intellectual Martians. During the protagonist's travels across the world, Atlantis rises from the depths, and divulges its secrets, including Telepathy, and perhaps Immortality to boot. [JC]
