Jensen, Kris

Tagged: Author

(1953-2014) US writer who began publishing sf with her first novel FreeMaster (1990). This opens the Ardel trilogy – whose further volumes are Mentor (1991) and Healer (1993) – in which an unscrupulous interstellar corporation is baulked from exploiting a mineral-rich planet inhabited by Aliens with Psi Powers. Of greatest interest are the detailed descriptions of the strange Biology of the Ardellans, which help give the sequence its pleasing Planetary-Romance flavour. [JC]
