(1948- ) US performance artist, playwright and author whose Nearly Roadkill: An Infobahn Erotic Adventure (1996) with Caitlin Sullivan is an sf tale whose two protagonists meet in a Near Future Cyberspace where in theory they can play sophisticatedly with their own and others' gender identities (see Feminism; Sex; Women in SF); but the net has succumbed to government tyranny. In response they foment and lead a successful insurgency against oppression. Bornstein's initial involvement in and subsequent public disavowing of Scientology have been well-recorded. [JC]
