Plowright, Teresa

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1952-    ) Canadian author who began publishing sf with Dreams of an Unseen Planet (1986; rev 1989), in which three human colony ships, having escaped an Earth near terminal Ecological collapse, orbit a sentient planet called Gaea (see Gaia), where they are stranded, and difficulties soon ensue. The tale, heavily burdened with symbols and a selfconsciously significant prose, climaxes in the realization that the planet needs humans and humans need the planet for either species to reproduce and therefore survive (see Parasitism and Symbiosis).
