ELPHINSTONE, Margaret


ELPHINSTONE, Margaret
(1948-)
   Scottish writer of at least two gardening books who began publishing sf with "Spinning the Green" in Despatches from the Frontiers of the Female Mind (anth 1985) ed Jen Green and Sarah LEFANU. Her sf sequence, the Incomer series - The Incomer (1987) and A Sparrow's Flight (1989) - applies a FEMINIST perspective to the post- HOLOCAUST story of the arrival of a wandering musician in a far-northern village and his winter-long residence there, and to further examinations of the post-patriarchal, post-technological world that is slowly revealed.
