Sheri Tepper’s Beauty

Leave a comment

1001098I’m saddened to learn of the passing away of writer Sheri S. Tepper.
Her novel Beauty was one of the most striking fantasy novels I ever read, and her talent was absolutely wonderful, as was her commitment to telling important stories.
She will be missed.

Beauty is a strange mix of science fiction and fantasy1, that speaks about the human need for beauty, and humanity’s loss of the sense of beauty through time.
And a lot of other things.
A revisionist fantasy that is both chilling and inspiring, it is highly recommended.


  1. it is not science-fantasy… it is a fantasy novel that includes a time machine and a vision of the end of humanity in a technological meltdown.
