D'Michelle Ferrier | 2 comments trying to find the name of a book I read about 20 years ago, thought it was by Harlan Ellison but couldn't find it in his bibliography. About a strange boy who joins a circus, has a doll with crystal eyes. The eyes may be aliens that have replaced him cell by cell. he has a formic acid deficiency that makes him eat ants.

If the part about the eyes is spoiler, you should edit your post to include some warning - as to not spoil the book for other people.

AKA "The Synthetic Man" in case the OP doesn't recognize the original title.

Ayshe | 4327 comments So, is the part about the eyes spoiler? I'd like there to be some warning for potential readers, if so.
