His Songs of Darkness and Dismay

This fascinating little article in the NYT is making me think of The Left Hand of Darkness, the scrub jay's juvenile family-support system, and that weird bit of Arthurian fiction I read where a witch is preserving her magical prowess through the generations by mating with her male children. Was that A. A. Attanasio or Marion Zimmer Bradley? I can't remember.

Anyway, it gives me a missing peice to the puzzle of a missing scene from Pythia, which in an important way has a character that embodies both herself and her lover. She needs a little sister who has taken her place. And she's OK with that.

And, I also have to ask, how much does a fruit fly sex-change operation cost?
