The Liminal People: A Novel

The Liminal People - Ayize Jama-Everett I totally stayed up late to finish this gripping novel about a healer who is also a shapeshifter, which is such a great conceit. I saw Octavia Butler's WILD SEED all over this book, which made me really happy. I could have used a few less "pansy" and "faggot" comments, but ultimately the first person narrator didn't seem like a giant homophobe, so I let it go. I'd be very excited to read more from Jama-Everett.
