Clothes make the man in this adventure story. A con artist is our hero. ( )
  DinadansFriend | Apr 30, 2014 |
A truly unique book and is the kind of thing that could only be written by Bayley. Conversely, the Daw edition features absolutely the worst cover on any SF novel I've ever seen.
Don't let the cover chase you away. This is a fascinating concoction about space armor,cyborgs, and the consideration of clothing as technology. You would never guess what a good novel this is from the doofy, coloring book, Scholastic book type DAW cover.
