Overview

Science fiction, Lee-style. This critically acclaimed novella involves a U.S. Air Force test pilot recruited for a very special mission: to fly an operational recovered UFO. Any test pilot's dream, right? Wrong. Special disfiguring surgery is required for anyone human who wants to fly the craft. This expertly plotted novella proves to detractors that Lee can write in many arenas, not just horror, and doesn't have to rely on the "gross-out" to keep readers enthralled. (Lee has implied that he may one day expand this project to novel-length, just as he hopes to expand his hard sci-fi TRIAGE novella 2202.) "OPERATOR "B" made the Preliminary Ballot for 1999 HWA Stoker Award for Best Novella. Little known fact: the working outline for this novella was a screenplay, which is also the case for his well-reviewed conspiracy/UFO novel THE STICKMEN.

Meet the Author

Edward Lee is the author of almost fifty novels and numerous short stories and novellas (or is it novellae? Hmm.) Several of his properties have been optioned for film, while Header was released on DVD in 2009; also, he has been published in Germany, England, Romania, Greece, and Austria. Recent releases include Bullet Through Your Face and Brain Cheese Buffet (story collections), Header 2, and the hardcore Lovecraftian books The Innswich Horror, Trolley No. 1852, Pages Torn From A Travel Journal, Going Monstering, and Haunter of the Threshold. One of Lee's creative ambitions is to one day write an effective M.R. James pastiche.

This is my first novel by Edward Lee and I must say he does not fail to deliver. The book is not long and at times it felt like one of Asimov's short stories with a different point of view. The book is well written and has a pretty good balance between detail and story development; So as to not bore you and make you drop it before ending it.Another thing I noticed is the science fiction part of this book is always present but feels more like a background element to help support the development of story and characters. So, if you are looking for a hardcore Science fiction book, steer away, if you are looking for a good light read regardless of genre this is a great choice.
