MASON, Anita
(1942-)
   UK writer. Her second novel, The Illusionist (1983), is a literary fantasy centred on Simon Magus. AM's sf novel, The War against Chaos (1988), also intensely literary in demeanour, posits a NEAR FUTUREUK of surreal bleakness dominated by thought-control and savage divisions between precarious Haves and Goyaesque Have-Nots, who live in something very much like Hell.
