NORTON, Roy (E.)
(1869-1942)
   US author of many Westerns and some sf, beginning with The Vanishing Fleets (1908), in which a group of scientists, having invented an ANTIGRAVITY device, use it to shift the world's fleets mysteriously about, terrifying the bellicose nations into disarming. In his second sf novel, The Toll of the Sea (1909; cut vt The Land of the Lost 1925 UK), the Pacific figures again, this time changing its shape and uncovering a LOST WORLD inhabited by advanced descendants of ATLANTIS. In The Flame(1916) another antigravity device allows its user to force Germany into early surrender. RN was notable both for his didacticism and for a strong narrative imagination.
