Working name of US author Charles Warren Rothman (1952- ), who began publishing sf with "The Munij Deserters" for Asimov's in 1982. Quarnian Dow, protagonist of his sf novel Staroamer's Fate (1986), has a Precognitive talent of uncertain value (when first encountered she is moneyless and near-desperate); this ability leads her unerringly to Earth's long-lost Generation Starship the Staroamer [sic] but fails to predict ensuing complications, once aboard, with descendants of the original crew. The sequel is Syron's Fate (2003 ebook). [JC/DRL]
