SF novel by Hotense Calisher writing as ''Jack Fenno''. Subtitled 'A Literary Mystery'.
''Hotense Calisher (1911-2009) US author of several sf novels - Journal from Ellipsia (1965), which depicts a somewhat metaphysical Alternate History where everything - as in E M Forster's famous dictum - connects with everything, especially the transcendental, genderless sex that permeates the narrative. The much more demanding near future Mysteries of Motion (1983) is set in space as a kind of NASA ark, with 100 selected passengers, attempts to dock into a Space Station, while the instigator of the trip composes a journal - several of her novels are in journal form - whose retrospective elements darkly portray the Earth below, where Climate Change has become catastrophic. The Small Bang: A Literary Mystery (1992) as by Jack Fenno is an Equipoisal tale mixing reincarnation, possible Alternate Worlds, sex and doppelgangers into a complex, sometimes metafictional mix'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
