PALMER, Thomas


PALMER, Thomas
(1955-)
   US writer whose first novel, The Transfer (1983), verges on the technothriller, and whose second, Dream Science (1990), made some stir for its quiet (but ultimately ruthless) intelligence. The protagonist of the book is one of those cursed with a perception of lines running across the physical environment which, when crossed, take one into PARALLEL WORLDS. These worlds, unfortunately, offer no solace to the protagonist, and evenhis eventual return to what he thinks of as prime reality is constrained by a dread sense that there is no true centre to life; that we may simply be passing through the worlds, greyly.
