 George Turner   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
George Turner was born in Melbourne in 1916, but spent the first six years of his life in the gold mining city of Kalgoorlie in Western Austrealia at the height of its boom.
Turner’s vision of Melbourne is gripping, especially to readers familiar with the geographical areas he is describing, and this strange picture of the familiar altered only slightly is more startling than any alien world full of strange creatures, and much more disturbing.
And Turner himself was throughout this time involved not only in the science fiction scene, as a critic, and very often as the father figure who young writers would send their manuscripts to, but now gave lectures on science and the future to conferences and groups outside science fiction circles, indeed outside writing circles.

George Turner's *The Destiny Makers* is set in the same future as his award-winning novel *Drowning Towers* (aka *The Sea and Summmer* in Australia/UK).
Turner's portrayal of a near-future Australia is compelling: he was writing about global warming and climate change before many scientists even recognised there was a problem.
But Turner's particular strength is in characterisation - each of his characters is a well-formed individual - and subtly enough drawn that it's impossible to find any character who is entirely "good" or "bad".

 Issue Sixteen: Interview with George Turner
I was asked by the editors of Eidolon to interview Turner in September 1994, well into the third year of my work on his biography.
During the course of time we have become friends and developed the habits of conversation that always go beyond the bounds of interview; we find it difficult to stick to 'the point', thus the result is a conversation, and not an interview.
George as usual had some new and interesting things to say about his work and the world, and had avoided the questions he didn't want to (or couldn't) answer.
