(1928-2009) French-born author, in the US from 1947 until his death; his family died in Auschwitz. Much of his work combines experimental forms with some content readable as fantastic; the term "surfiction" has been applied to Federman's version of the postmodern sensibility (see Postmodernism and SF). Of this work, The Twofold Vibration (1982), does incorporate a Near Future Dystopia into the mix, and so may be thought of as sf. [JC]
