Hernandez, Catherine

(?   -    ) Canadian actor, playwright and author whose first novel, Scarborough (2017), set in Metropolitan Toronto, is nonfantastic. Her second novel, Crosshairs (2020), set in a Near Future version of Toronto not dissimilar to that depicted in the previous tale, describes a Canada given over to Dystopian oppression, with those of the wrong race (see Race in SF) and gender Identity serving as scapegoats as Climate Change brings floods and other hints of terminus. This new vision of Canada soon spreads south of the border. [JC]
