Hekkanen, Ernest

Entry updated 26 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1947-    ) US-born author, in Canada from 1969, active from the early 1980s; much of his fiction brushes against the water margins of Fantastika, evoking a range of associations from Magic Realism to Franz Kafka. He is of sf interest for Dementia Island (1999), set in a hazily Near Future Dystopia whose rulers ship dissidents to the eponymous Island, where they are allowed some useless freedoms. [JC]
