Seawater and Stars: The Last Novel of Gideon Stargrave
from Grant Morrison’s AND WE’RE ALL POLICEMEN (Vertigo Winter’s Edge Annual 1998)…
“I want L.A. porn. I want the nerdiest guy in school transformed by a gifted surgeon’s knife into a beautiful, sexy girl and exhibited as a living erotic sculpture at Dionysian ceremonies of heathen bondage. That kind of look.”
Thus runs the promo copy on Stargrave’s latest, most frustrating sex novel; the alluring and racy cover conceals a dry marine-engineering text with buzzwords like ‘crawlspace’ and ‘Stephanie’s first date’ sprinkled throughout to help maintain the erections of the surprisingly substantial audience for brainy-geek-to-hot-slut gender pretender stories.
