George Alec Effinger: When Gravity Fails "This is the fourth or fifth
time I've been asked to give a public comment on an Effinger book; and each
time I've done it; and each time I've said you people are cheating
yourselves if you don't forego food and rent to pick up on Effinger's work.
Now, *this* time, will you for pete's sake listen to me and buy When Gravity
Fails? It's as crazy as a spider on ice skates, plain old terrific; and if
you don't pay attention I'll have to get tough with you! We have your
childen and your dog. Buy, read and marvel...or else."
-- Harlan Ellison on When Gravity Fails
At Amazon "When Gravity Fails"
He achieved his greatest success with the trilogy of MarÓd Audran novels set in a 21st century Middle East, with cybernetic implants and modules allowing individuals to change their personalities or bodies. The novels are in fact set in a thinly veiled version of the French Quarter of New Orleans, telling the fictionalized stories of the transvestites and other people Effinger knew in the bars of that city. The three published novels were When Gravity Fails (1987), A Fire in the Sun (1989), and The Exile Kiss (1991).
