Tagged: Author

(1956-    ) US author whose first novel, Mainline (1996), is an sf thriller involving much action in Parallel Worlds; the protagonist possesses a limited Psi-based ability to shift from one reality to another, in the course of committing industrial espionage through "back doors", but if she shifts too far cannot find her way back. Complications ensue when she falls in love, and attempts to keep to the world her lover occupies. There is an easy frankness about Sex and a tendency to baroque complications reminiscent of the early work of Samuel R Delany; but the tale ends in medias res. Her later work is exclusively fantasy.
