Cutting-edge tech means that they can modify body parts, regularly store their memories for cloning purposes & even merge with seemingly benevolent alien beings (known as symbs) to create another entity altogether.

The discovery of a steady--& mostly indecipherable--stream of data originating from a star system 17 light-years away offers some kind of hope of advancing the species & retaking the homeworld. But when the novels protagonist (a series of successive clones named Lilo-Alexandr-Calypso) travels out to 70 Ophiuchi, what she finds may not be salvation for the human species but its damnation.Almost 30 years after 1st release, Varleys 1st novel--like Joan Riverss face--has barely shown any signs of aging. Just as thematically cutting-edge & entertaining as it was in 1977, The Ophiuchi Hotline is a must-read for anyone claiming to be a science fiction fan.

(You know youre an undeniably hard-core genre fan, by the way, if you can properly pronounce this title.)--Paul Goat Allen (edited)
