** spoiler alert ** I enjoyed many of Foster's books when I was young. Some of them I've reread recently, and I've discovered that my tastes have changed and they no longer hold much appeal for me. This makes me hesitant to reread The Damned trilogy, because I remember that I particularly enjoyed them.

While I did not (and still do not) really agree with some of the ideas put forth about humanity in the series, I do remember being thrilled to see a series in which human physiology was remarkable to aliens and in some ways superior to their own. So many science fiction stories make humans a weak race with poor senses that has barely developed intelligence. This was a refreshing and interesting change.
