Read after Jo Walton reported on re-reading this in What Makes This Book So Great.

Seconded.

Jo considers a thematic trilogy of this with Cyteen and Stars In My Pockets Like Grains of Sand. That would work.

For me the immediate resonance was with the Ishiguro I read recently - Never Let Me Go: the two books put very different values on love and what it means to live to serve others' ends.

(Also, it is extremely convenient sometimes to have a second hand bookshop in the house.)

It's one of the very best SF novels of the 90s, and it's a great shame that Carter wrote very little else and has dropped out of sight.

I would love to see more work by Carter, but I'm happy for what zie has given us.
