George Chetwyn Griffith-Jones (1857-1906) 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. After writing freelance articles in his spare time, he joined a newspaper for a short spell, then authored a series of secular pamphlets including Ananias, The Atheist's God: For the Attention of Charles Bradlaugh. While he was on the staff of Pearson's Magazine, Griffith submitted a synopsis for a story entitled The Angel of the Revolution: A Tale of the Coming Terror (1893). It remains his best and most famous work. As an explorer of the real world he shattered the existing record for voyaging around the world, completing his journey in just 65 days, and helped discover the source of the Amazon River. Amongst his other works are: Olga Romanoff; or, The Syren of the Skies (1894) and The World Peril of 1910 (1907).
