Thompson, V M

Tagged: Author

(1948-    ) US author of several sf novels combining Horror in SF manoeuvres with medical Biology, her work tending to focus on Monsters created through Genetic Engineering. She published two novels of this description under her own name, Deadly Nature (1988) and Project God (1989), the latter of which unconvincingly attacks scientific hubris. Two of her tales – Deadly Breed (1991) as by T J Kirby and Dangerous Nature (1993) also as by Kirby – are pseudonymous. None of her work wrestles very convincingly with the difficult issues evoked.
