THE TERRORISTS OF IRUSTAN
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
Louise Marley breaks into the big time with THE TERRORISTS OF IRUSTAN (4), a June trade paperback, as she probes the consequences of cultural repression in a remote mining colony. Years after leaving a polluted Earth, the colonists have recreated the same oppressive society they once thought to change. Although women have no rights and no official identity in this male-dominated culture, they are allowed to serve as medicants to their people. And then one day, one such medicant decides enough is enough, and thus a revolution is born. But will she survive the consequences? Ms. Marley tackles a controversial subject with considerable subtlety, never letting her characterizations fall into stereotype even under the most radical of circumstances.
