(#159454) THE INCOMER. Margaret Elphinstone.

THE INCOMER. [London]: The Women's Press, [1987]. Octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. The author's first published novel. "In the paired novels THE INCOMER (1987) and A SPARROW'S FLIGHT (Edinburgh: Polygon, 1989, paper) the landscape is a blighted, post-holocaust one, and the community is maimed, in need of healing that can only come from an outsider, not from within itself." - Manlove, Scottish Fantasy Literature: A Critical Study, p. 214. "An impoverished matriarchal utopia has arisen in a post-holocaust world. The 'incomer' of the title is a traveling musician who learns the good ways of Clachanpluck, in this fairly standard feminist scenario." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 185. Trade paperback format. A fine copy. (#159454).
