The works of Fenton Ash are highly prized among bibliophile collectors of classic sci-fi and fantasy. Fenton Ash was a pseudonym of Francis Henry Atkins (1847-1927), who contributed widely to the pre-science fiction pulp magazines, writing at least three Lost-World novels along with much else. „In Polar Seas” is a romance of adventure in the frozen North, targeted mainly at juvenile readers but billed as being „for readers of all ages,” it describes the adventures of a team of British explorers who discover a lost Viking civilization in a hitherto unknown temperate zone near the North Pole. If you haven’t discovered the joys of Fenton Ash’s adventures there is a good place to start. Highly recommended!
