Heti, Sheila

Entry updated 4 September 2023. Tagged: Author.

(1976-    ) Canadian actor, playwright and author, most of whose work has been nonfantastic, though some of the tales assembled in The Middle Stories (coll 2001) show some facility with the toolkits of Fantastika. She is of some sf interest for Pure Colour (2022), a cosmogonical fable (see Metaphysics) whose protagonist, born into the first draft of the universe, finds that she has become a kind of portal to the second draft, where she inhabits various entities and levels of being, including the enfolding inner map of a tree. A final draft (see Eschatology) awaits. [JC]
