I think you meant H. Rider Haggard there.

I think you are right. I think I had Prester John on my mind at the time. Parallels with Rider Haggard.

Cool Re: Nominate Your 19th-Century F & SF Favorites

I would have to say HG Wells' War of the Worlds is one of the finest sf reads of that era, just superb!

I would also include the delightfully silly From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne. The blatant racism grates at first till you realise that its just Verne poking fun at colonialism!

For fantasy I would recommend Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu, which predates Dracula! Very chilling!

Rudyard Kipling:
The Phantom Rickshaw & Other Eerie Tales (incl The ManWho Would Be King) 1888
The Jungle Book (1894)
With The Night Mail (1905) Definitely SF.
