Recommended for: Gay-Clone-from-Outerspace-Aspirants
Read in January, 2007

Ok ... Gay Clones from Outer space... It's like when Harry met Sally, but in outerspace, and Harry's actually meeting an exact genetic copy of himself, they don't settle for the space needle. They're in Outta fuckin' Space!!

Don't worry the gay thing isn't an issue, because, when you're a space clone, you ARE gay. Them's the breaks... There's just no room for babies in outerspace (see: Enemy Mine). The book is a THICK read, definitely for Sci-Fi homos. But honestly, when it comes to pretty gay clones from outerspace, who ISN'T a Sci-Fi homo?

Lots of politics, space stuff, computer stuff, and gay stuff. I don't think Moriarty likes to write to one audience at a time. There's stuff in there for programmers. A lot of errant Hassidim trying to get home for dinner. Some Artificial Intelligents Pan-Trannyism going on. Imagine being a computer based on an old Jew's personality that can jump from body to body. Oh and the cyborgs. CHRIST, THE CYBORGS!!!

I just want other people to read it so we can talk about what the hell could possibly be going on. This was a 4 on the readership scale, but a Flawless FIVE on the WTF scale. LOVED IT.
