Author: Williams, S.
Publisher: Harper Collins
Publisher Place: USA

Description: This work was undertaken in the field of creative writing, specifically young adult science fiction, and uses the conventions of fiction to explore matter transmitters and the beauty myth. Matter transmitters are a trope of science fiction that is very old but unutilized (since the middle of the 20th century, thanks perhaps to Star Trek). Twinmaker revives the trope, demonstrating how any serious approach necessarily leads to interrogating contemporary notions of identity, embodiment, society and spatiality. Twinmaker was the author’s first young adult novel published in the United States, the first book in a series of three.
