"A riproaringly magnificent time. Passing For Human is quite unlike anything anyone else has ever done." -Neil Gaiman When a dolphin-like alien comes to Earth disguised in a female human body, it sets the stage for a wild feminist romp that out stranges Stranger in a Strange Land. "The pace of the story never lets up, yet it finds room for serious contemplation of humanity's woes. The style is easy, with an edge of noir. The central character is a bit of a tough girl which, mixed with her naivety about humans, makes for an intriguing and likeable character. Especially as she (in common with the other aliens) inhabits bodies she has chosen from Earth culture - Brenda Starr, Emma Peel, and Virginia Woolf. Who could not like that, especially the final scenes in which Virginia Woolf is involved in a running gun battle. The humour, pace, and wry observation make this a rare and wonderful beast - a serious science fiction novel that doesn't take itself seriously." -Graeme K Talboys, grumbooks Review Introduction: Barry Maltzberg Reglarly $12.99 Special introductory price $8.99
