Showalter, Gena

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1975-    ) US author almost exclusively of paranormal romances [not listed below], mostly designed for the Young Adult market. Of sf interest is the Alien Huntress sequence beginning with Awaken Me Darkly (2005), set in a Near Future New Chicago infested by Aliens, most of them not amiable; the kick-ass protagonist, head of the police department's Alien Investigation and Removal Agency, deals with alien crime (see Crime and Punishment). She undergoes erotic encounters. New protagonists have similar experiences. The Atlantis series beginning with Heart of the Dragon (2005) set in a kind of Alternate World where Atlantis, complete with dragons and Vampires, has survived. [JC]
