Frederick Merrick White (1859-?) wrote a number of novels and short stories under the name Fred M. White, including the six 'Doom of London' science-fiction stories, in which various catastrophes beset London. These include The Four Days' Night (1903), in which London is beset by a massive killer smog; The Dust of Death (1903), in which diphtheria infects the city, spreading from refuse tips and sewers; and The Four White Days (1903), in which a sudden and deep winter paralyses the city under snow and ice. These six stories all first appeared in Pearson's Magazine, and were illustrated by Warwick Goble.

NEWTON MOORE came into the War Office in response to a code telegram and
a hint that speed was the essence of the contract. Sir George Morley
plunged immediately into his subject.

"I've got a pretty case for you," he said. "I suppose you have never
heard of such a thing as the Mazaroff rifle?"
