Philip Dru: Administrator


By Colonel Edward Mandell House



“…one difference between House and other authors of fantasy fiction was his attempts to put his principles into practice by insinuating himself at the right hand of power. Another was that House responded to political developments in terms of his own utopian fiction. Time and again in his diary House recorded events and related them to passages in Dru. Indeed, he was so pleased with apparent correlations that he later allowed his biographer to reveal his secret identity as Dru’s author.
