Jane C. Loudon, née Jane Webb, was a 19th century English author. With *The Mummy!: Or a Tale of the Twenty-Second Century, a novel published in 1827 and set in 2126, she was a pioneer of science fiction (a genre that would only emerge as such almost a century later). Like Frankenstein, written a few years earlier, The Mummy! borrows some of the trappings of the Gothic novel, but builds on scientific innovation rather than on the supernatural.
