O'Keefe, Megan E

Tagged: Author

(1985-    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Another Range of Mountains" in L Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future: Volume 30 (anth 2014) edited by Dave Wolverton, and who initially focused on fantasy, in particular the Scorched Continent sequence beginning with Steal the Sky (2016), set in a Steampunk-inflected world with Airships and Doppelgangers and much usable gear. O'Keefe is of sf interest for her second series, the Protectorate sequence beginning with Velocity Weapon (New York: Orbit, 2019), a Space Opera whose protagonist awakens on a warship from Suspended Animation to find herself alone except for a similarly isolated enemy, and the AI who controls the ship. Complications ensue, as it is clear the two survivors will need to get civilization going again. [JC]
