Gunn Henry James, actual name and pseudonym of L. C. Kellenberger Henry James (15 Apr 1843-28 Feb 1916) Major American author who defected to England in 1915 in protest of America's delay in entering World War I, brother of the eminent philosopher William James, his goal (which critics feel he achieved) was to transform the entertainment genre of the novel into an acknowledged art form. As a critic, he was publically in debate with H.G. Wells over the nature of literature. Contemporaries felt that Henry James won the argument, but science fiction fans have a revisionist analysis. James' classical syntax (i.e. rich vocabulary, precise terminology, lengthy sentences) and psychological depth make up for mid-brow readers' sense that nothing really happens in his plots. This is an asset in ghost stories, at which Henry James excelled. See, for example, "The Ghostly Tales of Henry James" (New Brunswick NJ: Rutgers U. Press, 1948; New York: Grosset, 1963), "The Short Stories of Henry James" (New York: Random House, 1945), "The Turn of the Screw" (New York: Macmillan, 1898) which has been filmed as "The Innocents" {hotlink to be done} and televised {link to be done} John James (1923?-1993?): British * Votan [London: Cassell, 1966] comedy/fantasy on Teutonic myth * Not For All the Gold in Ireland [1968] comedy/fantasy on Celtic myth * The Bridge of Sand [1976] Juvenal the Roman poet-soldier narrates Mack James, pseudonym of F.

Jones failed to comprehend the relationship between this chart and the famous "Future History" chart of Robert A. Heinlein. Ronald M. Jones decided to take full credit for the authorship, and became defendant in a $4,400,000+ lawsuit in California Superior Court, in part because of his virulently malicious defamation of Jonathan. Ronald M. Jones also claimed to be "Assistant Producer" on a videotape conceived, scripted, directed, narrated, and special-effects-supervised by Jonathan Vos Post. Ronald M. Jones also perverted Rockwell International (where Jonathan did award-winning work) into ordering Jonathan NOT to attend scientific conferences to which Jonathan was invited to present refereed papers, and even banned Jonathan from attending various Science Fiction Conventions on his own time! In the opinion of Your Humble Webmaster, Ronald M. Jones is "The Milli Vanilli of Space Activists."

Turner, please e-mail the webmaster of this web domain immediately, as the trial is about to begin (as of November 1998).
