VOERMANS, Paul


VOERMANS, Paul
(? -)
   Australian writer whose first sf novel, And Disregards the Rest (1992 UK), mixes sf and magic realism into a somewhatspatchcocked tale of NEAR FUTUREAustralia beset by ALIENS, themetaphysical consequences of an earlier performance of William Shakespeare's The Tempest(written c1611), and much else. The Weird Colonial Boy(1993UK) is set in an ALTERNATE WORLD in which the British Empirecontinues to rule an oppressed Australia, but is opposed by revolutionaries whose raids combinesurreal horseplay and violence. PV continues to grapple with a plenitude of influences; but mayestablish a singular voice.
