V O Blum


In residence at the University of Canterbury this past summer, Blum is the author of three published novellas — Equator (1989), Split Creek (2007), and a speculative psychology tale entitled DownMind that was published by Steam Press (Wellington) in October 2013 and favourably reviewed in the 22 Feb. issue of the Listener. DownMind depicts the struggle of a Dunedin chemist to liberate the world from a commanding DownWave that biochemically depressed humanity from 1929-42 … only to ominously reappear in the 2020s.
