(1946-    ) US-born author, in the UK from 1968, whose advocacy of a radical Feminism informs most of her work, all of which is sophisticatedly told. Her sf novel, Cry Wolf (1986), however, essays a somewhat jumbled moral scan of the events leading up to a nuclear Holocaust in language both too ornately self-referential and too abstract to convey much of the subsequent shattered world as it attempts to sort truth from myth and to build anew. Little of her short fiction, as assembled in Oral History and Other Stories (coll 2007), could be described as sf, though much of it is fantastic. [JC]
