DORSEY, Candas Jane
(1952-)
   Canadian writer, arts journalist and social worker, author of three early volumes of poetry and co-editor of Tesseracts(3) (anth 1991) with Gerry Truscott (1955-). CJD began publishing work of genre interest with "Columbus Hits the Shoreline Rag" in Getting Here (anth 1977) ed Rudy Weibe; her terse, complex stories, assembled in Machine Sex (coll 1988), polemically re-use and rework sf and fantasy tropes from a FEMINIST perspective, engaging most memorably, and fascinatedly, in the title story, "(Learning About) Machine Sex", with the phallocentrisms of much CYBERPUNK. The protagonist of the tale, a computer-design prodigy and occasional hooker, debuted in CJD's first novel, the undistinguished Hardwired Angel (1987), written with Nora Abercrombie (1960-).
