5.0 out of 5 stars The Road to gy=c, 8 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Half Past Human (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
SF at its quirky best. The style takes some getting used to, heavily couched as it is in biological and medical terminology, but that is part of its charm. The landmasses of the world are giant gardens that feed the teeming hives of Human-lites below, tended by friendly farm machinery and patrolled by drugged up hunters forever on the look-out for the barbaric five-toes - remnants of true humans. The only real detraction -as is stated in this edition's introduction- is Bass' rather tokenistic treatment of women, but that aside you'll probably never read anything quite like Half Past Human... other than the slightly more polished sequel, The Godwhale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old style sci-fi, 11 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book as I have fondly re-read another of his other books, The Godwhale, many times. Perhaps not the best written book ever, but this didn't detract for me as I love the far-future world he's created so much. If you want something different, read Godwhale first, and then come back for this one.

I have been looking for this book for years, in paper back but could not find. I was amazed to find this book and the God Whale on kindle and just had to buy them
