Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.
(1879-1963) UK author whose work showed the influence of H G Wells in both Ship of Destiny (1951), where Post-Holocaust survivors sail across a drowned Europe, and The Smashed World (1952), set 3000 years hence in a World State which is destroyed by a reborn Napoleon. Some of Slater's effects oddly prefigure the afterlife fantasies of Philip José Farmer. [JC]
