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.
