Jama-Everett, Ayize

Tagged: Author

(1974-    ) US author whose Liminal People sequence – comprising The Liminal People (2011), The Liminal War (2015) and The Entropy of Bones (2015) – is set in an Alternate World where a group of young men and women, gifted with Superpowers, attempt to survive and thrive in venues depicted with Graphic Novel-like speedlines. The action is unrelenting, the tone surprisingly and lucidly light, and the powers on display – one protagonist can heal diseases; another's Telekinesis is used more or less for good; another, a mute martial artist, can convey her "voice" into other's minds – are rendered with a sense the author knows this material inside out.
