I did not see the name Sherri S. Tepper
listed anywhere, and she is a brilliant writer whose works
leave you with more than a few hours of escapism. So be warned - if you read her, you will think about what you read for a while afterwards. She is
a master at reading contemporary societal trends and pushing them forward into time and space...with results that cannot help but leave you nodding in
agreement, "This really could happen!"
Of particular note isThe Gate to Women's Country
, a near-future novel that incorporates the retelling of the fall of Troy with the struggles
of the characters in post-nuclear conditions. The novel explores numerous gender issues, while also looking at religious fanaticism, warfare and
Use caution, however. Ms. Tepper's books are not overly popular, and bookstore staff might not be aware that she has a number of interrelated
stories that make references to earlier works. This doesn't make them unreadable, just less rich without the back story.
