Bond, Gwenda

Tagged: Author | Editor | Critic

(1976-    ) US editor, critic and author, a founding co-editor of Say ... and a Contributing Editor to Locus magazine from February 2011 to February 2014. Most of her fiction has been Young Adult fantasy, beginning with Blackwood (2012), which is set in Roanoke, North Carolina, two of whose inhabitants are haunted by the historical sixteenth century residents of Roanoke Colony, whose disappearance remains a mystery. As the story evolves, however, it seems that a Mad Scientist revived from the dead may be responsible for the contemporary disturbances (see Horror in SF). The Woken Gods (2013) and Girl on a Wire (2015) are fantasy. The Lois Lane sequence, comprising Fallout (2015) and Double Down (2016), featuring the Lois Lane from Superman, is a Tie to the DC Comics universe; her lack of Superpowers is compensated for, even in the teenage years the tale covers, by her sharp wits.
