THOMPSON, Joyce (Marie)


THOMPSON, Joyce (Marie)
(1948-)
   US writer, often of works for children. Her sf novel Conscience Place (1984) describes with quiet gravity an apparent UTOPIA hidden in the US West which is in fact populated by MUTANT nuclear- DISASTER victims. These people are threatened by the "need" of the scientists who maintain the refuge to perform GENETIC-ENGINEERING experiments on them. In telling this emotive tale, JT avoids almost all the traps of sentiment.
