Lyhyt elämäkerta
Terence William (Terry) Dowling (born 21 March 1947), is an Australian writer and journalist. He writes primarily speculative fiction and dark fantasy though he considers himself an "imagier" – one who imagines, a term which liberates his writing from the constraints of specific genres. He has been called "among the best-loved local writers and most-awarded in and out of Australia, a writer who stubbornly hews his own path (one mapped ahead, it is true, by Cordwainer Smith, J.G. Ballard and Jack Vance)."

He has been Guest of Honour at several Australian science fiction conventions (including Syncon 87 and Swancon 15) and regularly tutors workshops on fantasy writing at venues including the New South Wales Writers' Centre, University of Sydney's Centre for Continuing Education, the Powerhouse Museum, the University of Canberra's Centre for Creative Writing, the Perth Writer's Festival and the University of Western Australia Perth International Arts Festival [1]- (for example, "Marvellous Journeys: Science Fiction & Fantasy Writing" and "Worlds and Futures That Work: What you need and what to avoid"). He was a panellist and presenter at Aussiecon 4.

Undoubtedly the worst collection of Jack Vance stories I've read.

The editors made the decision to lump all the pyschic/esp/afterlife stories into one volume, and it gets old quick.

Vance is not on stable footing here, and nowhere is this more evident than in the final story, which reads like the results of a late-night pot bullshit session on whether things like seances could have any scientific basis and if so, how would you go about testing them. Let's face it, Vance is a science fiction writer, not a scientist - the reasoning here is just embarrassing.… (lisätietoja)

Very much like an episode of 'American Horror Story: Freak Show.'

Here, we meet a young woman who's checked herself into a mental asylum. She claims it's mostly because she needs to hide from her sister, who'll be coming to get her. Her doctor believes this to be a delusion, but soon enough, the sister does indeed turn up - and her behavior is somewhat suspicious.

However, the doctor's sudden willingness to break all professional protocols and go haring off on a wild goose chased based on a slender thread of evidence strains belief.

It does culminate in an eerie - and nasty - finale, though!

A great, great, book. Eight very different stories, apparently built around Australian aboriginal mythologies, but set in a strangely twisted future. Wonderfully imagined and well told.

For those who don't know, the main character in these yarns answers to several names. One of those names is Blue Tyson.

This short review is also available on a dabbler's journal.… (lisätietoja)
