A. E., pseudonym of George William Russell (1867-1935) of Ireland: * The Interpreters [1922] * The Avatars: A Futurist Fantasy [1932] Ea: God of wisdom and water in Babylonian mythology. Evolved from Enki (Sumerian), he was one of the leaders among gods, responsible for day-to-day operational functioning of earth, sea, and sky, while delegating lesser aspects of the interface between these and humanity (i.e. agriculture, irrigation) to lesser gods. His cleverness often saved the universe and the less-brilliant gods. For example, Ea overcame the stone-monster Kumarbi when it assaulted heaven; Ea rescued Ishtar from the underworld; Ea (as described in "The Epic of Gilgamesh") told Utnapishtim to build the Ark. see: "Ancient Precursors: Oldest Science Fiction Novel" at start of TIMELINE PREHISTORY see: those miscellaneous other Pantheons Eagle: (1) mythological references {to be done}; (2) ornithological references {to be done}; (3) the Lunar Module that landed Aldrin and Armstrong at Mare Tranquillitatus, 20 July 1969 Mike Eagle, a.k.a.

James Baen refers to this style as "Magic with Rivets" and I concur. Bill Eaken: SF artist Bill Eaken ISFDB Jesse D.

Best known for his "Hard SF" publications, many in German, which dealt with the traditional themes of TIME TRAVEL and FTL (Faster-than-Light) spacecraft, and ANTIGRAVITY with unusually imaginative and well-thought-out analytical detail, marred only by weakness of characterization and plot. Although he did win a Nobel Prize, it was not for his most famous and popular work, which remained controversial until the present. The mother of Your Humble Webmaster almost ran him over with a car, in Princeton New Jersey, and the gentleman apologized profusely to her for troubling her, commenting that at night, he tended to look up at the stars while walking, and would not notice that he's strayed onto the street.

Authors Beginning "El..."

El: The chief God in half of Middle Eastern Semitic religions, represented by a bull; probably the father of the Golden Calf in the Old Testament; see: Baal, Aqhat Elaine: Two different ladies who loved Sir Lancelot: (1) Daughter of King Pelles, in Mallory's "Mort d'Arthur", who disguises herself for one night as Queen Guinevere, makes love to Sir Lancelot, and thus gives borth to Galahad; (2) the "Lily maid of Astolat" in Tennyson's "Idylls of the King", the chapter "Lancelot and Elaine"; retold later by Tennyson in "The Lady of Shalott." see: The Ultimate King Arthur Web Page {to be done} Richard M. Elam, Jr., American juvenile SF novels Mollie Elcalir, pseudonym of Richard S. Shaver Elder Gods: Numerous Pantheons distinguish between younger Gods and Elder Gods. The notion that each religion holds cultural sway only after a previous religion has been sociologically crushed has several implications explored in fiction. As pagan Gods were displaced by Christianity, magic itself began to be eliminated from the world. This is central to the many books of Thomas Burnett Swann. Even though the younger Gods are in control, there may be occult ways to re-awaken the Elder Gods:
  1. Algernon Blackwood
  2. various nature myths
  3. Aleister Crowley
  4. Black Magic ("magick")
  5. Charles De Lint
  6. various nature myths
  7. Robert Holdstock
  8. various nature myths
  9. Arthur Machen
  10. Black Magic
  11. Dennis Wheatley
  12. Black Magic
H. P. Lovecraft carried this notion of re-awakening the Elder Gods furthest, so much so that the phrase "Elder Gods" is now identified with Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. These deities are quasi-immortal interstellar interlopers, also connecting to Earth through some other dimension. They are neither Good nor Evil as such, but strangely Other. Some of them came to Earth because they were banished because of some long-vanished rebellion (a dark echo of fallen angels). These so-called Great Old Ones founded the civilizations of Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu -- among others -- and still have power of the ruins of these LOST LANDS. The Great Old Ones, with Cthulhu at the top of the heap, are now sleeping until the time destined for their re-awakening, which will not be a nice time for the human race. Besides Cthulhu, the Great Old Ones include Azathoth, Nodens, and Yog-Sothoth. Nodens is sometimes described as the leader of a rebel counter-faction within the rebel faction. Lovecraft created such a useful and haunting fantasy universe, that the Cthulhu Mythos has been continued by many writers of dark fantasy, most particularly Lin Carter and Brian Lumley.

American teacher/author "Wandering Jew", see George S. Viereck Eldritch Tales: need to add to magazines page {to be done} see Magazines Electra: (1) Daughter of Agamemnon and Cltemnestra, sister of Orestes, in Greek/Roman Myth; (2) described in works such as: * Oresteia: trilogy of plays by Aeschylus * Electra: play [414? B.C.] by Sophocles * Electra: play [413? B.C.] by Euripides * Opera by Strauss of rewrite of Sophocles' play by Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1903) * Mourning Becomes Electra [1931] trilogy of plays by Eugene O'Neill, set in 19th Century New England * Electre: play [1937] by Jean Giraudoux (3) One of the Pleiades, mother of Dardanus, daughter of Atlas, only seen by mortals in the guise of a comet. Electric Propulsion: basis of rocket engine which uses electrical fields to expel, at high speed, ions (typically cesium, xenon, or mercury) which were atoms from which electrons were stripped. The Electrical Experimenter (1914?-1920?): see Magazines Electromagnetic Pulse, or EMP: when a nuke is exploded in atmosphere or space, a burst of intense electromagnetic radiation is produced, which can disable electrical and electronic equipment and communications (except shielded optical fibers). Electron: the lightest charged Lepton (the others being the Muon and Tauon; the neutrinos being the uncharged leptons). It has a charge of 1.602 x 10**(-19) Coulombs. Atoms are negatively-charged electrons in shells around a positively-charged nucleus. The nucleus is protons plus neutrons, each of which is a baryon composed of three quarks, glued together by mesons, themselves pairs of quarks. An electrical current is a number of electrons travelling through a vacuum or conductor. Electronics: devices, such as vacuum tubes, transistors, microchips, which use the flow of electrons and/or holes to amplify, count, compute, switch, or perform other useful functions. Isaac Asimov postulated the future technology of "positronics" which similarly uses positrons, the antimatter equivalent of electrons, especially in the use of Robotics. Electron Volt: unit of energy in subatomic domain, equal to the energy gained by an electron accelerated across a potential gradient of one volt; equal to 1.602 x 10**(-19) Joules. Chemical reactions involve electrons being exchanged between atoms, requiring energies of a few electron volts. Nuclear reactions, as in the atomic bomb, hydrogen bomb, or antimatter space-drive require or release millions of electron volts. Abbreviated eV, giving rise to the related KeV (thousand electron volts), MeV (million electron volts), GeV (billion electron volts), TeV (trillion electron volts). Elemental: personifications of natural forces, in Fantasy or Horror literature, such as an animated Fire spirit (or Salamander), or similarly for Earth, Air, Water, or other related phenomena Elements: the ancient Greeks throught that there were four elements: Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. They postulated a spiritual "Quintessence" or Fifth Element as well [see "The Fifth Element"]; Plato's followers sometimes represented each element with a regular "Platonic Solid" -- Tetrahedron for Fire, Cube for Earth, Octahedron for Water, Icosahedron for Air, and Dodecahedron for Quintessence or for the entire Cosmos. Ancient Chinese postulated five elements: Water, Air, Fire, Metal, and Wood. Alchemists discovered many elements, leading to modern Chemistry. Mendeleyev laid out the Periodic table as a way of organizing 92 chemical elements (some consequently predicted by Mendeleyev, and later found). Now we know of over 111 elements (my wife and I think #111 should be called "Bilboium" -- do you know why?), which does not seem like much of an improvement over 4 or 5. Hence scientists analyzed the elements into more fundamental subatomic particles, starting with (in order of discovery): electron, proton, neutron, muon, pi meson, neutrino, and eventually had over 100 so-called elementary particles, again, not much of a simplification. So Murray Gell-Mann, and simultaneously Yuval Ne'eman and Abdus Salaam, postulated even more fundamental elementary particles, which Gell-Mann called "Quarks." We now say that they come in 5 types, each with its anti-quark, and are held together with gluons, of which there are various 'colors" in Chromodynamics"... and again, the old 4 or 5 elements start to look pretty good by comparison... Elegies of Ch'u (a.k.a. Elegies of Ch'u Tz'u): anthology of poetry from China, attributed to Ch'u Yuan, in the Chou Dynasty [1027-256 B.C.], with 17 poem cycles, mostly on the personal and professional sufferings of the poets, plus nine Shamanistic poems (the Fantasy-related reason for this listing). The text is corrupt, primarily from Han Dynasty additions. See: * The Nine Songs: a Study of Shamanism in Ancient China [1956] criticism by Arthur Waley * Ch'u Tz'u: The Songs of the South [1959] David Hawkes Elegy: (1) classically, a poem in elegiac distichs; (2) modern: lyrical poem of lamentation for a person or thing dead or vanished. Both classic and modern versions have influenced Fantasy, especially Dark Fantasy. Great Examples: * "Lycidas", Milton, mourning * "Adonais", Shelley, mourning * "In Memorium", Tennyson, mourning * "Thyrsis", Matthew Arnold, mourning * "Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard" [written 1743?-1750, published 1751] Thomas Gray, nonspecifically plaintive The Elephant in the Moon: satire by Samuel Butler, a delightful attack on the Royal Society, wherein an elephant purportedly discovered on the Moon turns out to be a mouse trapped inside the telescope. first published in: * Genuine Remains in Verse and Prose [1759] posthumous Eleusinian Mysteries: ancient rites honoring Demeter and Persephone, related to Greek/Roman Myth and still performed, in deepest secrecy, into the Chistian era. Modern conjecture is that psychedelic drugs were involved.

Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote that he was elevated to King after his older brother Artegal (a.k.a. Arthgall) vansihed as was presumed dead. Then Artegal came home, and Elidure, with true nobility, stepped down to allow the re-coronation of his brother. This story was elaborated upon in: * History of Britain, John Milton * "Artegal and Elidure", William Wordsworth Elihu: same name used for various Old Testament characters, the main one in the Book of Job (Job 32) who engages in rational discourse with Job after three false comforters have muddied the waters. Elijah: Major Hebrew prophet, 9th Century B.C., in Ahab's reign. He opposed the prophets of Baal, was fed by ravens as a miracle in mid-drought by the Cherith River, and resurrected Zarephath's son. He challenged the prophets of Baal to a magical battle on Mount Carmel, where two alters were built -- one to Baal, one to Jehovah. The Baal-ites prayed at their alter, but nothing happened; then Elijah prayed at his, and fire came down from Heaven. He was discouraged beneath a juniper tree (I Kings 19:4), cast his mantle on his chosen successor Elisha (hence "Elijah's mantle" symbolizes any official succession). He did not die: rather, he was carried up to Heaven in a tornado, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz (II Kings 2:11). see: Baal, Jehovah, Prophet Albert J. Elias: * The Bowman Test [Dell, 1977] Charles William Eliot (1834-1926): Chemist/professor in America; President of Harvard (1869-1909) who strengthened the university's already strong reputation, including the Graduate School and various professional schools, recruting many top professors; co-founded Radcliffe College for women;promoted the Elective course system, greatly influencing many colleges in America, listed here for his claim that "all the books needed for a real education could be set on a shelf five feet long" which he implemented in his role with: * The Harvard Classics, 50 volumes, editor Charles William Eliot. Question: what is the 5-foot shelf of Science Fiction? Of Fantasy? This constuction of a "Canon" is radiacally challenged by post-modernism. George Eliot: pseudonym (1857) of Mary Ann Evans, a.k.a. Marianne Evans (1819-1880): major mundane novelist of England, not directly related to Science Fiction or Fantasy, except in that she raised the bar of quality of didactic, social, moral, and detailed characterization novels of closely-obseerved people clawing their way towards maturity, and thus indirectly strengthened the claim that Science Fiction and Fantasy are not "real literature" because they fall short in exactly these ways. Her mundane but brilliant fiction, which she started writing only when she was middle-aged, include: * Leben Jesu ("Life of Jesus") [1846] translation, under her real name, of nonfiction (German) by D. F. Strauss * Scenes of Clerical Life [1857] collects 3 short stories published earlier that year in Blackwood's * Adam Bede [1858] * The Mill on the Floss [1860] * Silas Marner [1860] * Romola [1863] extensively researched historical novel of Renaissance which is a must-read for Fantasists treating the Renaissance * Felix Holt * The Radical * Middlemarch (arguably the greatest of all mundane novels) * Daniel Deronda Lewis Eliot: narrator/protagonist of the "Strangers and Brothers" novel series by C. P. Snow (an important scientist/novelist/critic) T. S. Eliot, full name Thomas Stearns Eliot (1888-1965): Major poet/critic; see: Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry E. C. Eliott, pseudonym of R. A. Martin Elise: (1) Unlawful Queen of Tyre in "Astrate, Roi de Tyr", tragic drama by Quinault; (2) "L'Avare", comic play by Moliere, in which Elise is the miser's daughter Elisha: Hebrew prophet for 50 years to 4 Kings of Israel (ca. 850-790 B.C.), see: Old Testament (II Kings), Elijah Elissa: see: Dido; The Faerie Queen Elixer of Life: (1) Alchemist's approach to IMMORTALITY (2) Technically, the word "Elixer" is Arabic for a powder to sprinkle upn wounds, but has the somewhat related meanings: (3) the Philospher's Stone; (4) tincture for transmuting metals; (5) any panacea, especially when used by a quack. Eliza: character in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and thus one of the fictional characters who most influenced the "real world" by inspiring anti-slavery sentiment before the American Civil War. Elizabethan: the 45-year era (1558-1603) of the reign of Elizabeth I, a major literary renaissance in England, triggered by the elevation of the English language to acceptability for "serious" literature, the execution of Mary Queen of Scots [1857], the publication by the great Fantasy poet Edmund Spenser of "The Shepheardes Calendar [1579], and including such monumental works as: * Aeneid, first full English translation of Vergil's masterpiece * A Mirror for Magistrates * Dr.Faustus, Fantasy play by Christopher Marlowe (see: Faust) * Tamburlaine, play by Christopher Marlowe * The Jew of Malta, play by Christopher Marlowe * Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity, Richard Hooker * various pamphlets, Robert Greene * various pamphlets, Thomas Nashe * various pamphlets, by the pseudonymous Martin Marprelate * The Essays of Montaigne, translation by John Florio * The Faerie Queen, Edmund Spenser (see: he Faerie Queen) * Astrophel and Stella, Sir Phillip Sydney * The Sonnets, Shakespeare * Amoretti, Edmund Spenser * Delia, Samuel Daniel * Idea, Michael Drayton * The Arraignment of Paris, romance/light Fantasy play by George Peel * Endymion, romance/light Fantasy play by John Lyly * The Spanish Tragedy, play by Thomas Kyd * most of the plays of William Shakespeare By 1600, just before the death of "the Virgin Queen", the literature of the Elizabethan era had peaked, was declining into self-parody, and was soon displaced by a counter-Renaissance known as the Jacobean era.

Ellipsoid: the surface generated by rotating an ellipse about one of its axes. If the rotation is about the minor axis, the result is an Oblate Spheroid" elongated like a rugby ball; if the rotation is about the major axis, the result is an Prolate Spheroid", flattened at the poles as is any fast-rotating planet (specially Jupiter) or more gently, as with Earth, or almost to a discus (as in Hal Clement's "Mission of Gravity", to a first approximation).

His madness kept his output small, but his works such as "Venus and the Madonna" and "The Epigony" show the delicately sensitive and pessimistic view of the nature of humanity. As a Romantic poet, he played with fantasy themes including aspects of the legends and philosophies of India. The beauty of his language influenced many later prose and poetry works of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Emission Spectrum: [Physics; Astronomy] Ionized gas emits electromagnetic radiation of wavelengths specific to thr element or compound ionized. When raised in energy (i.e. heated) the electrons of the atoms move to higher orbits, and when they fall back to lower energy orbits, they emit photons of exact energies, which combine to form bright lines in the spectrum. This is how astronomers can identify the gasses which make up the atmospheres of stars, or the dust and gas of interstellar nebulae.
