ANNA LIVIA
   Working name of Irish-born UK writer and editor Anna Livia Julian Brawn (1955-), a lesbian feminist of radical views, which she has advanced in tales of considerable wit, though at book length her effects become uneasy. Her second novel, Accommodation Offered (1985), invokes a spirit world which has a ring of fantasy. Her third, Bulldozer Rising (1988), is an sf DYSTOPIA which depicts a culture rigidly dominated by young males in which old women, unpersoned and unperceived from the age of 40, represent the only remaining human potential, the only hope for revolt. About half the stories assembled in Saccharin Cyanide (coll 1990) present similar lessons in sf terms. Other works: Minimax (1992), a feminist vampire novel.
