SF novel - expanded from a story originally published in New Worlds Quarterly
''(1937-2017) UK author whose first acknowledged novel - her actual first, The Colour of Rain (1964) as by Catherine Aydy, was not sf - is THE TIME OF THE CRACK (as ''The Crack'' in New Worlds 5, anth 1973, ed Michael Moorcock; exp 1973; vt The Crack 1978), an sf novel about an inexplicable faultline - described in terms that imply a gamut of meanings, from sex to apocalypse - that opens through the heart of London, told at least in part as a parody of the Cosy Catastrophe tale'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition) - though another blurb I have seen says ''The adventures of a Playboy Bunny in London after an earthquake wrecks the city!''.
