INTRODUCTION: Michael Bishop & Steven Utley
Stories handed down from antiquity tell of gods and devil's that assumed human guise to interfere in the affairs of mortals, and modern writers of science fiction and fantasy continue to fashion gripping tales in the same tradition, using the outsider, the alien, as a mask for one or another aspect of humanity. The face behind the mask has always been our own, of course, even in the case of aliens that impersonate human beings — presenting, as it were, a mask behind the face. In Passing for Human, Michael Bishop and Steven Utley offer a broad range of approaches to this surprisingly adaptable theme, by a powerhouse line-up of writers, both established and hot out of the gate, who clearly demonstrating that the very idea of pseudo-people (whether animal, vegetable, mineral, or none of the above) still resonates in the human imagination.
