Irish Speculative Fiction Writers: Francis Stuart (1902 - 2000)

Australian-born Francis Stuart ought to have stood astride twentieth century Ireland as a speculative fiction colossus.  Everything fit; his marriage, when aged just eighteen, to the iconic Iseult Gonne who was then almost a decade his senior; his movement in the literary circles of the time which kick-started a writing career spanning seventy-five years; his deep commitment to republicanism, especially during the inter-war years.   909 more words
