COVER TEXT:
A bizarre human-aliens symbiosis is born on the planet Baudelaire. When a spaceship en route for Ygdrasil is trapped by the fearsome world known as Abatos, one of its hapless passengers is offered temptation on a superhuman scale. An artificially intelligent submarine tries to hold a human being captive. A space explorer on the red planet Mars stumbles on two groups of very different aliens - both of whom have highly unusual reproductive systems...
Here are masterly evocations of fantastic human-alien interfaces, in all their disturbing complexity.
(Panther Books)
