''Full Tide of Night (1998) explicitly transfigures motifs and characters from The Duchess of Malfi (performed 1614; 1623) by John Webster, from which the title is taken; set on a remote planet whose female ruler (based on the Duchess) dominates two conflicted male figures, who engage fatally with each other and her. In a complex ''Jacobean'' plot, which conflates family romance, politics and interstellar Space Opera, a ''race'' of once-human Computer-housed beings called the Erinye - ie, the Furies - threatens these farflung remnants of Homo sapiens, as though human race-guilt were written in the stars. After a cathartic plethora of deaths (as in the original play), galactic order may be restored'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).encyclopedia.com/entry/dunn_j_r#sthash.Ui0awkpP.dpuf
