ASHTON, Francis Leslie


ASHTON, Francis Leslie
(1904- ?)
   UK writer whose first sf novel, The Breaking of the Seals (1946), sets a psychic time-traveller into a prehistoric world where primitive society ends in chaos with the breaking up of Bahste, Earth's then moon; a Deluge follows. Its thematic sequel, Alas, That Great City (1948), set in ATLANTIS, propounds a similar catastrophe, with a new planet arriving to become the Earth's moon and sinking the continent. Wrong Side of the Moon (1952), written with Stephen Ashton, deals more mundanely with an attempt at space travel.
