is a novel by Alan Dean Foster
. It is a very strange book. An alien, a punk, a nerd, and a valley girl team up to save the universe by keeping an Empathic Weapon
out of the hands of evil aliens. Along the way, they meet strange new lifeforms. And Neanderthals.
This novel provides examples of:
- Pretender Diss: Punk rock guy Seeth points out you can always tell the posers by their nice shoes.
- The Reveal: Foster does quite a good job of concealing through most of the book that the punk and nerd are brothers.
- The Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer: Seeth fits in much better in space than he ever did on Earth.
