Ethan of Athos

Cover of Ethan of Athos.

Brilliant fun! Take this mostly horrible scifi concept of an all-female planet, reverse it to an all-male planet, then take it seriously. This poor protagonist doctor, sent out into the hostile and horrfyingly feminine universe, meets the brilliant Ellie Quinn of all people. It was SO MUCH FUN. (Also, we get a gay happy end, in a way? Awwwww.)

Quotes

As long as I’m going to commit a crime, let it be a perfect one. Anything worth doing is worth doing well, as Admiral Naismith would say…

Never do yourself, what you can con an expert into doing for you.
