Arnott, Robbie

Tagged: Author

(1989-    ) Australian author whose first novel Flames (2018 ebook) is shaped as a Fantastic Voyage around the Island of Tasmania, without specific sf elements but dense with mythopoesis (see Fantastika). His second novel, The Rain Heron (2020), feeds some more orthodox sf elements into the mix; the tale, set in a Near Future Dystopian world ravaged by Climate Change, focuses on a woman in a solitary hardscrabble struggle to exist in what may be a relatively intact inland territory, and on a soldier questing for the eponymous bird: which may betoken a healing fertility.
