Ali Mirdrekvandi (?–?)
Iranian author, self-educated servant to American and British officers in Iran during World War II, for whom he wrote his only published book, No Heaven for Gunga Din: Consisting of the British and American Officers' Book (1945?; 1965), a fantasy about a group of dead officers and their faithful servant, veterans of a future world WAR, who wander through the Milky Way and other astral realms in search of HEAVEN and meet, among others, ADAM, the ANGEL GABRIEL, and the commanders of the CLOUDS, RAIN, SNOW, WIND, and FATE. Though crudely written, its childlike blend of CHRISTIAN theology and Middle-Eastern ambience makes it unique, and oddly interesting.
