Horrific but like. Wow. I had a lot of feelings about this, enough to write (for the first time in my life) an essay more than the minimum page limit, and more than the max!

The trials and tribulations of a sociopath in a future society of peaceful, well-adjusted individuals. There's some interesting content here, about how the sociopath, unique in his society, equates his violence with 'freedom' - but he's really just a petty loser and a self-centered bully.

A so-so issue. Nothing special, but nothing especially bad, either.

Damon Knight - The Country of the Kind - 4 stars

James Blish - A Time to Survive - 3 stars
- Humans who have been genetically modified to live in extreme environment
