(1953-    ) US author in whose Wild Card Run sequence of sf adventures – Wild Card Run (1987), Win, Lose, Draw (1988) and Double Blind (1990) – a refreshingly tangential attitude towards plotting keeps a young female protagonist with Psi Powers hopscotching from planet to planet. En route she embraces her own tangled family romance on one world, and elsewhere confronts some AI conundra, sensing that the entire venue of her sport is in fact a galactic experiment on their part. A singleton, Islands (2001; rev 2002), sets a slightly spoofed treasure hunt on an Island which seems to house a Lost World. [JC]
