"This is an engrossing novel by one of the genre's most accomplished storytellers." --Publishers WeeklyAll the universe is a stage...and Sparky Valentine is its itinerant thespian. He brings Shakespeare--a version of it anyway--to the outer reaches of Earth's solar system. Sparky can transform himself from young to old, fat to thin, even male to female, by altering magnetic implants beneath his skin. Indispensible hardware for a career actor--and an interstellar con man wanted for murder...

Customer Reviews of The Golden Globe

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sci-Fi at its funniest. The Golden Globe reads like a combination of Donald E. Westlake and Robert Heinlein. Hilarious and compelling, it only drags for a neccessary but over-long explanatory interlude comprising news articles about the hero, inserted to cover a lot of history in a hurry. This book is a terrific read.
