Teed, Cyrus Reed

(1839-1908) US author whose The Cellular Cosmogony; Or, the Earth a Concave Sphere [for full title see Checklist below] (1898) as by Koresh, argues in barely fictionalized terms for the existence of the Hollow Earth. Of more direct sf interest is The Great Red Dragon; Or, the Flaming Devil of the Orient (1909) as by Lord Chester, a Yellow Peril tale set in the Near Future, focusing first on an unsuccessful Chinese-Japanese Invasion the Christian West, and then on a great Disaster where the Sun is transformed into a world-embracing ring.
