Gilman, Charlotte Perkins]. CHARLOTTE PERKINS GILMAN: Her Progress Toward Utopia, with Selected Writings. Syracuse University Press, 1995. Some items in this collection are glancingly Lost Race of the utopian sort. As the collection is little-known to fantasy readers, I'll describe fantasy content relevant to more than utopia. "Aunt Mary's Pie Plant" from Women's Home Companion June 1908 is a rather tentative utopian told in the manner of a local color story; city sophisticate visits small village that supports womens' businesses. "The Garden of Babies" from Success July 1909 is a utopian vision of a place that meets the needs of mothers. "Her Housekeeper" from Forerunner January 1910, is a satire of a world wherein a husband can be the housekeeper. "A Strange Land" from Forerunner August 1919 is a very short allegory previsioning her utopian novel Herland. "Maidstone Comfort" from Forerunner Sept 1912 set in a women's rest home was written in opposition to Dr. S. Weir Mitchell's actual methods which inspired Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper" & is therefore an addendum to that classic. "Forsythe & Forsythe" from Forerunner April 1913 is another social utopian of women's & men's utter equality in matters of divorce & remarriage. "Bee Wise" from Forerunner July 1913 is an ambitious tale of a feminist utopian city. "A Council of War" from Forerunner August 1913 expresses further feminist utopian notions. Also excerpts from her utopian fantasy novel Moving the Mountain & from Herland (1915); & from With Her in Ourland (1916).

The basis of the past popularity of Lost Race novels were the novels of H. Rider Haggard, whose excellence in such classic novels as Allan Quatermain and She hundreds of lesser talents recognized as worthy of imitation.

And who, with a thread of scientific sophistication, would wonder if a mighty civilization did await discovery in the earth's interior? Nonsense! Obsolete romantic drivel—And yet there is present an increasing eagerness to forsake sophistication and training in order to find, or be carried off to, overlooked "Edens" of adventure, romance, and archaeological wonder.

It has been and is one of the major frameworks through which utopian schemes are promulgated. H. Rider Haggard set the trend, invented the props, and proved the marketability of the lost race romance." ~ Stuart A. Teitler
