SCHOLZ, Carter


SCHOLZ, Carter
(1953-)
   US writer who began publishing sf with "Closed Circuit" for Clarion SF (anth 1976) ed Kate WILHELM, and whose short fiction, which appeared with some frequency for the next decade, constitutes a series of dark and fluid visions of the inhabitants of the world to come. None of these stories - like the striking "The Eve of the Last Apollo" (1977) - has been put into a CS collection (Cuts [coll 1985 chap] restricting itself to previously unpublished material). He fell almost entirely silent after 1986. CS is known mainly for his one novel, Palimpsests (1984) with Glenn Harcourt; its dense, refractive, ruminative, palimpsest-laden stylemore than amply surrounds the story of an archaeologist yanked from brooding internal and external exile by the discovery of a dizzyingly anachronistic object at a Neanderthal dig. TIME PARADOXES are alluded to, but with something like ABSURDIST torpor, and the novel ends in dark irresolution, in an epiphany of flow - "of landho that would never quite achieve landfall" - which simultaneously moves and irritates the reader.
