It’s not about the precipitation of which we’ve had way too much. It’s <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberpunk">cyberpunk</a>. Snow is an albino whose testicles are worth a great deal of money in certain quarters. He lives on a desert world called Vatch in the <a href="https://www.nealasher.co.uk/polity-encyclopaedia/">Polity universe.</a> The story concerns those who would have said anatomy in a stasis box versus Snow’s desire to remain anatomically intact. Along the way, he meets a remarkable young woman with a third agenda. </p><p>Why is Snow so sought after? Why can’t people just leave him alone? What does the girl really want? Is the desert a metaphor? Neal Asher continues to explore the meaning of “human” in a story well worth reading. Or is it really a love story?</p><p>Found in<i> The Gabble and Other Stories and available via Nightshade books.</i></p><p><i><br></i></p><p><i>My text creative commons attribution required, share alike.
