Rowe, Rebecca

(1965-    ) US author whose first novel, Forbidden Cargo (2006), energetically develops from a moderately complex premise: on a Terraformed Mars, illegal Genetic Engineering has created a group of modified humans known as the Imagofas, who cope better with the new worlds in view that unmodified Homo sapiens and who are therefore hunted down (see Clichés); the subsequent action, which deploys two protagonists on the run, and contains sojourns in Cyberspace, is competently unpacked. Circle Tide (2011) also complicatedly deploys enhanced humans on an earth plagued by Computer piracy and unknown diseases. [JC]
