SF novel.

''whose remarkable first novel, published as a Mainstream work, is sf: Easy Travel to Other Planets (1981). Set on a Near-Future Earth against a backdrop of global information sickness, war in the Antarctic and a new emotion nobody has ever felt before, it tells a love story - with visionary ramifications - concerning a woman marine biologist and the dolphin on whom she conducts experiments in Linguistics. It has been seen as a proto-Cyberpunk work, but its cool, pellucid, dissecting style - perhaps influenced by J G Ballard - is far removed from the hectic insistence that has characterized much of that school. Mooney's second sf book was the Alternate-History novel TRAFFIC AND LAUGHTER (1990), set in the Near Future of an Earth where World War Two was inconclusive and nuclear power never developed'' Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
