Jakober, Marie

Tagged: Author

(1941-2017) Canadian author whose only sf novel, The Mind Gods: A Novel of the Future (1976), is set on a colony planet (see Colonization of Other Worlds) where a materialist, tolerant society confronts a repellent spiritual creed (see Religion). With some subtlety the outcome is shown to be not altogether, morally, on the side of the liberals. Jakover's later books of genre interest are historical fantasies, beginning with the impressive The Black Chalice (2000). [PN]
