Aikin, Jim

Tagged: Author

Working name of US author James Douglas Aikin (1948-    ), most of whose books are technical manuals for producing electronic music. His first sf novel, Walk the Moons Road (1985), gives operatic colour to a moderately intricate Planetary Romance featuring aliens, humans, seas, politics and sex on a planet which is not Earth. His second novel, The Wall at the Edge of the World (1993), more ambitiously sets its protagonist – a non-Telepath in a Post-Holocaust society – the task of reconciling his home culture with that of the "wild" women who live in hinterlands.
