Schwehn, Kaethe

Tagged: Author

(circa 1979-    ) US academic, memoirist and author whose first novel, The Rending and the Nest (2018) is of sf interest for its depiction of a vast Disaster, the disappearance of 95% of the human race, though typically of the Mainstream Writer of SF this "inexplicable" vanishment is more metaphorical than actual. The survivors of this disaster, or some of them, occupy a remote rural Keep, with strange births, and the sudden irruption of a Mysterious Stranger who tricks them into accepting (or being drawn into) his own enclave world, which they discover is a Zoo. Lessons are learned. [JC]
