Osborne, Karen

(?   -    ) US author who began to publish work of genre interest with "Retirement" in Aiofe's Kiss for December 2008; her Memory War sequence beginning with Architects of Memory (2020) is a Hard SF Space Opera, containing elements of Military SF. set in an interstellar environment with resemblances to traditional Galactic Empires out of the SF Megatext, with vast corporations dominating huge sectors of inhabited space. The action depends on the discovery by an indentured operative (see Slavery) of a secret Weapon, possibly ancient (see Forerunners); complications ensue which in Engines of Oblivion (2021) are focused increasingly (see Time Abyss) on the ancient civilization and its possible gifts.
