Campion, Sarah

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of UK-born author Mary Rose Coulton (1906-2002), author of Father: A Portrait of G G Coulton (1948) as by Sarah Campion, an impressive biography of her father, the important medieval scholar who also wrote Friar's Lantern (1906), a Timeslip fantasy. After being expelled from Germany in 1937, where she had been teaching Jewish children, she spent most of her remaining life in Australia and New Zealand; her late novels, set in Australia, are not fantastic. Earlier, as Campion, she wrote Thirty Million Gas Masks (1936), a Near Future tale predictive of the coming catastrophe. [JC]
