Spicer, Arwen

Tagged: Author | Critic

(1975-    ) US academic and author, whose nonfiction work has focused on authors like William Morris and H G Wells, with an emphasis on their approach to what eventually would be known as Ecology. Her sf novel Perdita (2001) explores similar issues in a tale set on the artificially isolated eponymous planet, where pro- and anti-Technology families vie for dominance as the Invention of Matter Transmission device opens doors to the galaxy. In her second novel, The Hour Before Morning (2012), three prisoners (see Crime and Punishment), each of them a rebel against the Galactic Empire that has conquered their home planets, discuss their fates.
