Francis Stevens *

a.k.a. Gertrude Mabel (nee) Barrows Bennett

Author Code: AFST

Born: (?) 1883 - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

Died: (?) 1948 - (?) USA

Educated in Minneapolis, Barrows attended night school hoping to become an illustrator, but instead had to settle for a job as a stenographer. She married Stewart Bennett, an English explorer, in 1909 and they moved to Philadelphia. Bennett died in 1910 while on an expedition and Barrows was again forced to continue work as a stenographer. Her father died in 1916, leaving her with the increased responsibility of caring for her invalid mother. It was at this time that she began to write in the hopes of supplementing the family income. In 1917, she published her first story, The Nightmare in All-Star Weekly magazine, writing under the pseudonym of Francis Stevens. Over the next five years, she produced a number of short stories and novellas, most of which appeared in magazines such as Argosy. Her work was praised by such notables as H.P. Lovecraft and Arthur Merritt. Stevens was the first major female author of science fiction in America, but after her mother's death in 1920 she only published one further work before returning to her career as a stenographer. Her other works include The Citadel of Fear (1918), The Labyrinth (1918), The Heads of Cerberus (1919), Claimed! (1920) and Sunfire (1923).
