Where were you the day the Aswan dams broke? It�s the question that defines my generation. Me, I was stuck in British School al-Rehab hundreds of kilometers from the destruction that plunged North Africa into darkness and drowned twenty million people as massive floods reclaimed the ancient Nile valley. We watched the privileged and the sane abandon Egypt to the criminals, prostitutes, and a mysterious murderous cult of Osiris known as the Deadboys. Not much of the capitol remained, and my life really went to hell.

But that�s not where my story really starts.

My story starts the day I, Christian El-Aref, distinguished myself from the thousands of Cairo street rats and became the Mouse. And I had that dead UN soldier whose body that I, quite literally, stumbled over to thank for it all. Now, if only I can keep myself from getting murdered�

Also included: Morehouse�s AngeLINK-related short story, �ishtartu,� from the Lambda Award-nominated collection Periphery.

I'm soooo happy Lyda Morehouse has returned to this particular world: post major world war that has been blamed on people's lack of religious morals, so now it is mandatory that one be officially registered in a religion. & what's more, the archangels are on earth, doing His/Her bidding, and in this case, He/She has ordered them them to martyr a rather nice transgender prophet. Even Satan doesn't feel good about killing this particular prophet. I prefer the other books in the series, but this one was very good and politically more daring than the others. However, it was much shorter so the world and characters didn't feel as rich as the early ones. (& the copyediting was rather poor, but oh well.) Despite my minor quibbles with it, it totally deserves to be on the short list, or even the winner, of the next Tiptree award. Read the whole series if you can get your hands on it!
