Preternatural.

By: Bonanno, Margaret Wander

Price: £8.00

Quantity: 1 available


SF novel, first in the trilogy: ''right up there with some of Philip K. Dick's more paranoid pieces'' (Locus).

''more interestingly, Bonanno has also published two moderately ambitious series. In The Others, a Planetary-Romance sequence comprising The Others (1990), Otherwhere (1991) and Otherwise (1993), the eponymous aliens, stranded on an Earth-like world, must attempt - through telepathy and intermittent bouts of interracial breeding - to survive the onslaughts of jealous, inferior human-like natives. The Preternatural sequence, comprising PRETERNATURAL (1996), Preternatural Too: Gyre (2000) and Preternatural 3 (2002), complexly combines fabulation with sf tropes - like Time Travel and episodes occupying intersecting dimensions and aliens stranded on Earth - in a narrative which in part comprises a multi-volume book written by a forty-something sf writer in trouble with her life and work, and in part carries this sf writer herself into Recursive SF venues which may be delusional. On the other hand, the aliens may be writing her. The sequence is technically of considerable interest, though Bonanno's control over her material is sometimes less than magisterial'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
