Justina Robson’s Living Next Door to the God of Love fits into a grouping of books which has often frustrated me. That is a group which involves characters who are supposedly vastly superior to humans. We are talking about books where gods, superior aliens or hyper evolved (transcended) humans are core or even POV characters in the book. You can immediately see where the problem lies – how do you present the thoughts of a character who is by definition so beyond us that its motivations are beyond your comprehension. I’m borrowing from the vocabulary of such books in using these terms.

The rest folded into another dimension )
