Coatsworth, J Scott

Entry updated 8 July 2022. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) US author much of whose output has been concentrated on various subseries in his Liminal Sky sequence of Space Operas, whose gay protagonists engagingly explore themselves, the worlds they encounter, and find romance (see Sex). The first of these, the Ariadne Cycle beginning with The Stark Divide (2017), focuses on three Generation Starships built to save Homo sapiens. The Oberon Cycle series beginning with Skythane (2017) is set around 3000 CE on a planet divided into two Parallel Worlds; a Planetary Romance idiom shapes the narrative. The Redemption Cycle series beginning with Dropnauts (2021) explores the possibility that a Ruined Earth may be once again inhabitable. Spells & Stardust (coll 2018) assembles shorter work, non of these stories previously published.

Fix the World (anth 2021) is an Original Anthology whose stories address dilemmas suggested by its title. [JC]
