Tagged: Author

(1954-    ) US author. Her first novel, Woman of Fire (1988; vt Eyes in the Fire 1989), is fantasy. Her second novel is an historical romance with fantasy elements, the first of several (not listed below) that she has concentrated upon since the 1990s; they take their inspiration from folk ballads. Her third novel, the Post-Holocaust Plainsong (1990), is an unsentimental Pastoral tale about the arrival of a new Messiah in a plague-devastated land; the cover bears an apparent subtitle, A Fable for the Millennium, which does not appear on the title page. Grabien's fourth novel, And Then Put Out the Light (1993), is a ghost story. [JC]
