Biografia breu
Sheri S. Tepper, née Shirley Stewart Douglas, also wrote under several pseudonyms, including A. J. Orde, E. E. Horlak, and B. J. Oliphant. Her early work was published under the name Sheri S. Eberhart. She was born near Littleton, in rural Colorado, and loved reading science fiction books as a child. For most of her career (1962-1986), she worked for and guided the growth of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, where she eventually was named Executive Director. She was married to Eugene X. Tepper and had two children. After her retirement, she and her husband moved to a ranch near Castle Rock, Colorado, and later to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she launched her second career as a writer. Over the next three decades, she became a prolific author of acclaimed science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mystery novels; she was particularly known as a feminist science fiction writer, often with an eco-feminist slant.

Deep world building and highly intriguing and thought provoking social themes.

Surprisingly good. The concept was interesting from the start and the story was really not bad. I had some moments of impatience, particularly when some of the girls fall for the deceptions of the boys, but the ending was quite good. I read this too fast to see it coming, but there was a nice symmetry to it all. I didn't like the thing Tepper was doing with the play at first, but in the end, it did fit quite well.

I am so glad Jininan was in this book! I don’t think I would have liked it as much otherwise.
I did enjoy Wizard’s Eleven quite a lot - excellent writing, wonderful characters (see above), the world was still interesting, Peter did grow up a bit, and it was a nice blend of fantasy and sci-fi.
But:
- the main villain was a caricature
- all the bad guys were relatively easy to deal with
- the revelations about “the Great Plan” and the ending felt rushed and not really thought through = unsatisfying.

I am interested in reading Sheri S. Tepper’s later books, though. Apparently, there are also other books set in the same universe, I might give these a try at some point.
