Thirteen by Morgan

I finished Thirteen, by Morgan: Dystopic Future, genitically modified humans, Mars, cannibalism, what more could you  ask for?  Morgan is adept at creating a dystopic vision of the all-too-near future.  The issue of racism is recast here as a sort of xenophobia describing ongoing tension between “13’s” who are genetic variations of modern humans – essentially the original hunters in the hunter/gather equation – and their “femanized” descendents, us.  Morgan creates and fills out a whole mythology here and gives the moster a soul.  Brilliant book.
