Ireland, David

Tagged: Author

(1927-    ) Australian author whose A Woman of the Future (1979), his best-known work of sf interest, depicts a bizarre but positively conceived set of futures through which his protagonist searches, and finds congenial. City of Women (1981), on the other hand, presents a Feminist vision of separatism whose ending befits its Alice in Wonderland style, as the vision turns out to be the hallucination of a lonely woman. Archimedes and the Seagle (1984), a fantasy, presents the memoirs of a dog. [JC]
