Teller, Astro

Tagged: Author

Working name of UK-born entrepreneur and author Eric Z Teller (1970-    ), in USA (his parents are American) from early childhood; he is of sf interest for Exegesis (1997), an epistolary novel comprising email correspondence between an AI and the woman striving to gain credit for (and intellectual property rights upon) its Invention. Some of the interactions depicted evoke echoes of the Frankenstein Monster's relationship to his morally defective creator; but in this case a better rapport is achieved. [JC]
