Fairly standard scifi work with two-dimensional characters. There were some interesting plot twists, and a strong female lead. Entertaining. ( )
  fuzzi | Jun 22, 2019 |
Another brilliant genre-bending SF; also maybe one of the first works of the bio-fi subgenre (cf. his Greenface in the 1940s). ( )
  Patentnonsense | Aug 3, 2008 |
A favorite work by one of the underappreciated authors of the sixties, James H. Schmitz.

She's worth plenty -- dead or alive -- to more than one faction in this obscure battle. And she's beginning to have a chilling notion that the long-vanished Masters of the Old Galaxy were wise when they exiled the plasmoids to the most distant and isolated world they knew. . . .… (more)
