Leven, Jeremy

Tagged: Author

(1941-    ) US academic author whose two Equipoisal sf-like novels, Creator (1980) and Satan: His Psychotherapy and Cure by the Unfortunate Dr Seymour Kassler, J.S.P.S. (1982), both apply a sometimes portentous mainstream sensibility to generic conceits (see Mainstream Writers of SF). In the first, the attempted creation of a Clone to replace a dead wife activates considerable magic-realist brooding about a variety of issues. In the second a Computer turns out to house the eponymous Principle, invoking thoughts about the mind and the brain. [JC]
