ZOLINE, Pamela
   Working name of US painter and writer Pamela Lifton-Zoline (1941-), in the UK 1963-86. She illustrated, in a collage-derived style, several stories for NW in the late 1960s, including the magazine publication of Thomas M. DISCH's CAMP CONCENTRATION (1968 UK). Her debut sf story, "TheHeat Death of the Universe" (1967 NW), is a finely structured application of the concept of ENTROPY to the life of a US housewife, through whose perceptions its rise is experienced literally. The story appeared in PZ's 1st collection, Busy About the Tree of Life and Other Stories (coll 1988UK; vt THE HEAT DEATH OF THE UNIVERSE AND OTHER STORIES 1988 US); the long story which gives its title to the UK edn is also sf. With John T. SLADEK, PZ ed both issues of and contributed to Ronald Reagan: The Magazine ofPoetry (1968); other contributors included Disch and J.G. BALLARD. In Telluride, Colorado, she has since 1986 written, designed and produced sf plays for the Muddbutt Mystery Theatre.
