Among Carroll's notable fellow authors, and as his mentor (it was sup- posedly the enthusiastic reception of MacDonald's three daughters that encouraged Carroll to publish), it is impossible to ignore the work of George MacDonald, frequently referred to as the father of modern fantasy. Flora now advanced, and welcoming Waverley with much kindness, expressed her regret for his accident, of which she had already heard the particulars, and her surprise that her brother should not have taken better care to put a stranger on his guard against the perils of the sport in which he engaged him.

Awakened from a mystical stasis, the last survivor of an elder race must decide the fate of those who destroyed his people. Although the first actual pulp-paper fiction magazines date from 1896, the "pulp era" in SF usually refers to the period between the founding of the first specialist magazines, Weird Tales in 1923 and Amazing Stories in 1926, and the pulp die-off in the mid- 1950s.
