Willmot, Eric

Tagged: Author

(1938-2014) Australian author whose Near Future sf novel, Below the Line (1991), describes the consequences of an Indonesian Invasion: Australia is broken into two Dystopias, as most Australians view this outcome, and run on Asian rules. The narrative itself expresses relatively little alarm – Willmot was of Aboriginal birth – and the ending is optimistic. [JC]
