Scott, Rosie

Tagged: Author

(1948-2017) New Zealand author, in Australia from 1987, most of whose work – which is various and widely published – is nonfantastic. Of sf interest is Feral City (1992), a Dystopian tale set in a Near Future Australian City, mostly wasteland haunted by the unwanted. The protagonist and two companions opens a bookshop. A fragile attempt to re-establish a humane urbanity is necessarily fraught, but, strugglingly, succeeds. Scott was made an Officer of the Order of Australia for services to literature in 2016. [JC]
