I believe this was David Gerrolds first big novel, and it shows, even in the updated version, which is the one I read. Now many years later I was very excited to find I could get it on my Kindle. First off, I would strongly recommend that you skip the first two introductions. Looking forward to reading it again. This was not the best work by David Gerrold. The good news is, he's improved with time.
