Frost, Gregory

(1951-    ) US writer whose first work of genre interest was "In the Sunken Museum" (1981 The Twilight Zone Magazine), and whose most remarkable single novel, The Pure Cold Light (1993), is sf. Most of his other work has been fantasy. His first novel, Lyrec (1984), transforms an apparently straightforward Sword-and-Sorcery tale into a complex Planetary Romance involving Alternate Worlds, conflicted Gods and a variety of Talents. The Tain series – Tain (1986) and Remscela (1988) – retells with considerable energy myths concerning Cuchulain. [JC]
