Howrey, Meg

Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) US dancer and author whose first works of genre interest, the City of Dark Magic fantasy sequence beginning with City of Dark Magic (2012), was written as by Magnus Flyte in collaboration with Christina Lynch. She is of sf interest for The Wanderers (2017), a Near Future narrative whose protagonist, a female astronaut, finds life on Earth desolatingly hard at a time when Climate Change increasingly devastates the planet. She is offered a chance to join a crewed mission to Mars, which initially requires a seventeen-month immersion in a simulated mission, and accepts. Howrey deftly embeds the tale in domestic issues, which take their toll, but do not ultimately defeat her protagonist (see Women in SF). [JC]
