WREN, M.K.
   Working name of US writer Martha Kay Renfroe (1938-) whose early work - the Phoenix Legacy trilogy, comprising Sword of the Lamb (1981), Shadow of the Swan (1981) and House of the Wolf (1981) - was fantasy. A Gift Upon the Shore (1990), on the other hand, is an ambitious and eloquently written post- HOLOCAUST sf novel in which two women seek to preserve knowledge - in the form of books - for future and more fortunate generations, in the face of destructive and attemptedly murderous enmity from the religious zealots with whom one of them must learn to live.
