* ChinaTakesOverTheWorld: ''The Unparalleled Invasion'' has a slow (and very racist -- it is a ''perfect'' example of the Yellow Peril concept, though not of the trope) version: a modernised Imperial China (it was written in 1910, literally a year before the Qing fell) expanding by having its growing population constantly move into bordering regions. Outnumber the natives, officially annex the place, start moving into the ''new'' bordering regions... ultimately, they're stopped by an international coalition using biological warfare to exterminate the Chinese population (the Unparalleled Invasion the title references). [[ValuesDissonance This is portrayed as a good thing]].

Jack London (1876-1916) was an American author best known for his adventure novels and short stories. He was also one of the first Americans to make a lucrative career exclusively from writing. Twice (in 1901 and 1905) he ran for mayor of Oakland, CA, as a socialist. When he was 21 he went to the Yukon Territory to prospect for gold during the Klondike Gold Rush; this served as inspiration for some of his most famous works, such as "To Build a Fire" and ''The Call of the Wild''. He also worked as a journalist, penning a memorable [[http://london.sonoma.edu/Writings/Journalism/sfearthquake.html eyewitness account]] of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.
Despite what you know about him from school readings, Jack London also wrote a great deal of ScienceFiction and {{Fantasy}} short stories and novels throughout his life which are not well known but highly regarded by those who have read it.
London died of kidney failure, with morphine addiction and severe alcoholism as contributory causes, in 1916. He was an extremely prolific author, releasing dozens and dozens of novels, stories, short story collections, and poems over a 20-year career.
