''US writer whose only novel of sf interest, M31: A Family Romance (1988), is a fabulation in an agglutinative style reminiscent of that used by William Gaddis in 'The Recognitions' (1955). Abandoned by their parents -- Dot and Dash, who claim descent from the inhabitants of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) -- the protagonists of the book ricochet numbly through the nightmare shopping malls and 7-11s of the modern ''rural'' USA. The vacuum family they make together and the horrors they commit contribute to an extremely distressing vision of the latter moments of the 20th century'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
