Robert Coover on Jody Scott
"Jody Scott was a gifted modernist writer who used the apparatus of fantasy/sci-fi to mock humanity's hubris and ephemerality. It has taken a long time to make human bodies, but it takes no time at all to unmake them: Jody Scott found hilarity in that. A delightful iconoclast who used vampires, extraterrestrials, zombies as metaphoric tools for her very human craft." -Robert Coover
Robert Coover, (born February 4, 1932), award-winning American writer of avant-garde fiction, plays, poetry, and essays whose experimental forms and techniques mix reality and illusion, had a vast influence on a generation of postmodern writers.
From his Amazon author page, "Robert Coover has published fourteen novels, three short story collections, and a collection of plays since The Origin of the Brunists received the The William Faulkner Foundation First Novel Award in 1966. At Brown University, where he has taught for over thirty years, he established the International Writers Project, a program that provides an annual fellowship and safe haven to endangered international writers who face harassment, imprisonment, and suppression of their work in their home countries. In 1990-91, he launched the world's first hypertext fiction workshop, was one of the founders in 1999 of the Electronic Literature Organization, and in 2002 created CaveWriting, the first writing workshop in immersive virtual reality."
