Chambers, Stephen

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(?1981-    ) US author who began publishing sf with his Hope sequence of tales comprising Hope's End (2001) and Hope's War (2002), a colony planet whose technology (the backstory is moderately complex) is at about the level of medieval Western Europe. The Planetary Romance glow this setting gives off is darkened through the genuine difficulties experienced by the young protagonist Vel in his coming-of-age, and by a sense of the inevitability of infighting and Realpolitik (see Politics) that must attend any traditional sf-like move towards a better world.
