(1880-1968) UK author whose family emigrated to the USA in 1890; active in the magazines from about 1904 and best known for His First Million Women (1934; vt Comet "Z" 1934), an early version of the sf topos where sterility (see Disaster) affects all but one man – an Adam and Eve-associated topic more widely used after the first nuclear explosion. Weston's protagonist uses his new status to promulgate Near Future disarmament, until the dissipation of Comet "Z"'s effects makes it possible for him to be ignored. The Apple-Tree Girl: The Story of Little Miss Moses, Who Led Herself into the Promised Land (1918) and Queen of the World (1923) are fantasy. [JC]
