Pseudonym of Camille Auguste Marie Caseleyr (1909-1985), a Belgian who, after World War Two, emigrated to Australia, where he set his sf novel, The End of It All (1962). The tale depicts a nuclear World War Three and climaxes in doomed Australian attempts to cope with epidemics unleashed by the opposing forces. The tale then becomes a Future History, which describes the protracted but total extinction of humanity. [JC]
