WORLD WITHOUT MEN
IN A WORLD OF ONE SEX, ANOTHER MEANS DISASTER! Aubretia was a solid citizen of five thousand years from now. She looked upon herself as happy, normal, with the proper emotional interests, and well-adjusted to her work--which was the control and broadcasting of news. Then came the day when she was called in to look at a strange body found in the arctic ice. That was the first time she had ever seen a man. At that instant, she realized several shocking truths... that she wasn't really happy, she wasn't really normal, her emotions were all unnatural, and her work wasn't free. It took a little while to discover the last, because she tried to broadcast the news--and ran headlong into a murderous censorship of whose very existence she had never dreamed. From that moment on, her life and that of every other inhabitant of the world--all female--headed for the greatest crisis in history. The nature of that crisis, how the world got that way, and what would result, make up one of the most brilliantly different novels ever written. In a world of only one sex--women, love was an unnatural affair, fostered by the inhuman hand of the unseen government. Babies were created by laboratory techniques based on mass-deception. There was one all-important project that supplied humanity's only motive for continued existence--the struggle to re-create the male sex. The basic concept was the search for the 47th chromosome. Yet the very act of realizing this dream was to set up a crisis the world of women had never anticipated--and could not control! Here is a truly unique novel which dares to discuss a scientific subject hitherto untouched by science-fiction. Slanted for the intelligent adult reader, it will be ranked with 1984 and Brave New World.
