ELLIOTT, Janice
(1931-)
   UK writer since 1962 of sophisticated novels of domestic passion. Her sf novel, The Summer People (1980), places in a NEAR FUTURE world one of her typical casts, who decide it would be a good idea, while society collapses off-stage, to remain ensconced in their holiday resort for the time being. An Arthurian sequence for older children - The King Awakes (1987) and The Empty Throne (1988) - arouses the once and future king into a post- HOLOCAUST UK. The Sadness of Witches (1987) is a tale of the occult. City of Gates (1992) is set in a Jerusalem guest-house which exists, via time-loops, in every relevant epoch.
