free read Blue Apes Tesseract Books review Blue Apes Tesseract Books Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Phyllis Gotlieb Ç 3 read From the title piece Blue Apes a story of discovery loss and betrayal on a distant planet to Sunday's Child an accoun. I picked up this book after reading Gotlieb s novel Flesh and Gold and being VERY favorably impressed with it This is a collection of some of her short fictionIt is again VERY impressiveThis book has the notable distinction of being the VERY FIRST book I have read from a small press that I would say is absolutely excellent Kudos to Tesseract booksLooking them yup I notice that another severly underestimated Canadian sf author is involved with the imprint Candas Jane Dorsey What is up with the US not pushing excellent authors from Canada anyway Another who comes immediately to mind is Pauline Gedge her books are amazing but just try finding them in the USI dunno It s certainly not the case w Margaret Atwood and I m sure there are other exceptionsAnyway the stories areAmong You an excellent powerful story that reminded me can t really say exactly why of Theodore Sturgeon The main character is an alien shapeshifter but one who knows nothing of his past or culture a ship full of infants of his kind landed on Earth and they have been raised here semi intergrated into our culture but still alone and lonely The individual here works using his shape changing ability as a therapist helping humans but who is there to help himTauf Aleph Also an impressively excellent story On an alien planet the last Jew alive petitions GalFed to send someone to perform his last rites so he can die in peace But there is no one ualified Finally GalFed programs an outdated robot with knowledge of Judaica and sends the robot The Jew does not find the robot acceptable but it does become a help when the man finds himself protecting and caring for a group of aliens whom he finds repulsive but feels compassion toward as well Against his will these aliens look to him as their spiritual leader and wish to become Jews themselves very moving but the last line totally rescues it from sappiness AmazingThe Other Eye Short painful but good story of a drudge working in an alien society She goes blind in one eye but that eye sees visions or hallucinations of another better life but her society does not look kindly upon such aberrationsMother Lode More of a space adventure dealing with humans and other sentients who live and work within the bodies of giant tunneling worms But schedules are off things are becoming odd the worms may be becoming hostile A GalFed investigator has been sent to see what might be happeningThe Military Hospital Not my favorite piece here but still good More of a study in an ambiance rather than a plot driven work it deals with the temporary director of an automated hospital dealing with wounded veterans in a dystopic chaotic violent futureBody English very short piece again ambiance than plot giving us people who for money let the elderly and ill mentally switch bodies for brief amounts of time letting them experience youth and health while they in turn bear the excruciating exhausting painMonkey Wrench A mystery in space A wealthy but ugly man on a small space station is found dead and his young wife is missing When crew from a nearby station come to investigate they find a maze of clues in the computer showing a web of mystery and insanity and one of their team seems to know too much as well Entertaining and a well done mesh of two genresSunday s Child On a future earth the climate is cold and life is harsh Ominous aliens vaguely threaten humanity s feeble grasp on the earth and now in a small Eskimo like community an amnesiac woman is mysteriously pregnant And most of the people start feeling an unexplained urge to leaveWe Can t Go On Meeting Like This Another short short story again on the theme of using technology to achieve mental transfer Here lovers avoid adultery by paying to enter the minds and bodies of zoo animalsThe Newest Profession another emotionally rough story extremely well done Here women with few options are paid by a corporation to incubate and give birth to genetically altered animal like children to be used experimentally with the aim of colonizing foreign planets with workers adapted for alien environmentsThe plot centers around one woman s legal defense of another who dies in the course of this work but the real center of the story is the situation and the bigotry against and oppression of these womenBlue Apes The final title story deals with a GalFed investigator who goes to see what has become of of a failing space colony The former investigator was killed and he is the last hope He finds a degenerate group of mentally disabled adults cared for by their bright normal children who know that they in turn will become like their parentsBut can he give these children hope or simply a terrible revelationIt reminded me of that Star Trek episode where all the adults die of a disease and the children are eually precocious and dangerous but this is done with much depth and emotionExcellent excellent anthology I m upgrading Gotlieb to absolutely one of my favorite authors Already ordered of her stuff of which there s actually a lot Ready to Die The Story of Biggie Smalls Notorious BIG reading Gotlieb s novel Flesh and Gold and being VERY favorably impressed

Gotlieb s second and final short story collection is an odd compendium It repeats some stories included in her first collection while leaving several of her other unprprinted stories including some excellent ones to oblivion What s doubly puzzling is that several of the previously uncollected ones included here are pretty short and minor better discard them for some of the substantial unreprinted stuff Nevertheless several of Gotlieb s strongest and most ambitious stories are here and onlyone or two of the other sare clunkers and they tend to be very short eg The Other Eye which just seems underdeveloped If you want a bit of an eclectic taste of Gotlieb this is a good starting place
