    DescriptionIll luck made Roger Torraway the subject of the Man Plus Programe, but it was deliberate biological engineering which turned him into a monster -- a machine perfectly adapted to survive on Mars. For according to computer predictions, Mars is humankind's only alternative to extinction. But beneath his monstrous exterior, Torraway still carries a man's capacity for suffering.

    Review text
    A man-on-Mars project, set against darkening threats of global war, that involves removing or replacing most of a human body to create a "Martian" able to withstand alien atmospheric conditions. The first man to submit to this grotesque torture dies in the process; the second is Roger Torraway, dimly starting to realize his wife's unfaithfulness while a team of experts, including her lover, baby him through the complex rebuilding of every sense and data-interpreting function. Meanwhile, another shadowy presence silently monitors the entire precarious project. . . . Pohl, a pro's pro, produces a rapid, slick narrative held together by the finely imagined situation of the bewildered, cuckolded Roger. (Kirkus Reviews)
