Hi All,

Francis Leigh Ashton is an early SF writer. The wiki entry says "him" in the first sentence and then "her" in a later sentence. This error is duplicated all over the internet with the pronouns in the same places. Since Francis is the male form of the name, I am thinking that the author is male. However, some lists have "her" as an early female writer (but I can't find any actual evidence). If anyone knows for certain, please let me know, and I will correct the bio. Right now, I am going with male. 

Thanks, Rhonda
