In some ways Polar City Blues is my tribute to the classic SF I read as a teenager. In other ways, it's a heavily Revisionist book, where the Hero is female and the Object of Desire is male. Mostly, however, it's a fast-paced adventure story complete with dead bodies, hookers, drugs, mysterious aliens, and several high-speed chases both on the ground and elsewhere.
