(1970- ) US author and academic whose sf novel, Stardust Bound (1994), is set in a world dominated by the UniTech government, which has created a category of illegal activities called "science crime": such crimes include the practice of Astronomy. The lesbian protagonist is torn between love and astronomy in the Andes. An essay, "Feminist Cyberpunk" (November 1995 Science Fiction Studies) sharply delineates the "masculinist" nature of the mode in the 1980s, and judiciously argues for the relevance of Pat Cadigan's late 1980s and early 1990s work.
