Recently I read an ill informed article clickbait sort of thing that ridiculed the use of naked green women on the covers of science fiction books I can't say I recall seeing much of that in my long history of being an SF reader but in this case it is simply a matter of the cover artist being faithful as Michael Whelan always is to the story In fact I only knew of this novel because the cover art or a variation thereof probably reworked after the publisher was done with it appeared in Whelan's first monograph Earthchild is the story of Reee two syllables the last human being alive on Earth Much of the planet has been overrun by an ocean like parasite called Indigo and Reee is protected by her own survival skills and by another mysterious shape shifting entity called Emeroo The rest of humanity left for Mars ages ago but now they are coming back for the legendary last human on Earth But Reee doesn't want to be rescuedThis is an unusual and sometimes just plain weird fable that provides an interesting examination of what it means to be civilized Who is the savage the girl who runs around naked and lives in harmony with nature or the advanced culture that makes war and tries to kill everything
