This is not your typical Batman story. It's way darker than Saturday morning cartoons, any of the movies and most of the graphic novels, even those by Frank Miller. This is Batman stripped down to his most basic weapons, intelligence and anger. He uses his guile far more than any gadget to get the bad guys, and boy are they bad. This story deals with child pornographers. Batman declares war on them. Needless to say, you should pitty the pornographers.

Not a bad book if you enjoy out of the ordinary SF. Be sure to read the section on the many stupid edits the copy-eds made to his original text, which Piers preserved for printing later. This book is both an interesting SF adventure tale and a hilarious tale of a simple writer having his work buthered by idiot copy-eds.

An excellent thinking-man's sci-fi novel. This is not a ray-gun, beam-me-up, space-ship romp type of novel. It examines what it means to be human and finite in an almost infinite universe.

This was my personal favorite Piers Anthony book and I belive his most creative and unique. It might have received awards had he already been established as a writer, but Piers was an outsider in those days. This book did establish his creative and honest style of writing that he carried through his many novels and autobiographical books.

Not Mr. Anthony's best book. This is basically a short story stretched out to novel length. Easy to read but not that interesting.
