Williams, Missouri

Entry updated 20 June 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1992-    ) US editor, playwright and author, now in Prague, whose first novel The Doloriad (2022) focuses primarily on a family composed both of survivors of and those born with Mutations after a Near-Future series of planetary Disasters. Incest seems necessary, as they may be the only humans left. But the matriarchal head of the clan sends the protagonist, who was born without legs, on a dream-inspired journey in search of others to mate with (see Exogamy; Gothic SF). Her journey, as indicated by the title of this novel, will be epic; her days are full of discourse with artifacts of figures like Thomas Aquinas (see Religion); her return may constitute an Instauration [see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below].
