Schroeder, Andreas

Tagged: Author

(1946-    ) German-born poet, broadcaster and author, in Canada from 1951; much of his work skirts various regions of Fantastika, including the fabulistic tales and parables assembled in The Late Man (coll 1972), his first volume of fiction, some of which are sf, and the more organized of which convey some of the surreal fixity of gaze of Franz Kafka. The protagonist of Dustship Glory (1986) builds, for reasons governed by his prophetic instincts, a ship in the Canadian prairie, and sails the great vessel down the Saskatchewan River in search of Transcendence. Most of his work, however, settles for the real world. [JC]
