COOK, Paul Harlin


COOK, Paul Harlin
(1950-)
   US poet and novelist whose infrequent sf stories began with "The Character Assassin" in Other Worlds \#1 (anth 1979) ed Roy TORGESON. In his first novel, Tintagel (1981), a virus transports its victims, by actualizing their response to MUSIC, into fantasy worlds from which the immune protagonist must rescue them. Duende Meadow (1985) depicts the post- HOLOCAUST return of North Americans to the surface of the world, where they find Russian farmers. The lure of transcendence marks PHC's books; if their focus sharpens, they may become substantial.

   Other works: The Alejandra Variations (1984); HALO (1986); On the Rim of the Mandala (1987), a congested SPACE OPERA.
   See also: EVOLUTION; MUSIC.
