Loriga, Ray

Working name of Spanish director, screenwriter and author Jorge Loriga Torrenova (1967-    ), who is of sf interest primarily for his tenth novel, Rendición (2017; trans Carolina de Robertis as Surrender 2020), set in an abstracted but violent Near Future world ravaged by constant War. The protagonists of the tale are relocated to a small and literally transparent City, a Dystopian Keep whose inhabitants are under constant surveillance; here they are subjected to erosions of Identity that, in the end, prove terminal. A new breed of humans will find total transparency (see Media Landscape) entirely natural. [JC]
