Amazon Editorial Review:
Charlie Johns has been snatched from his home on 61 North 34th Street and delivered to the strange future world of Ledom. Here, violence is a vague and improbable notion. Technology has triumphed over hunger, overpopulation, pollution, even time and space. But there is a change Charlie finds even more shocking: gender is a thing of the past. Venus Plus X is Theodore Sturgeon's brilliant evocation of a civilization for whom tensions between male and female and the human preoccupation with sex no longer exist.

As Charlie Johns explores Ledom and its people, he finds that the human precepts he holds dear are profane in this new world. But has Charlie learned all there is to know about this advanced society? And why are the Ledom so intent on gaining Charlie's approval? Unsettling, compelling, and no less than visionary, here is science fiction at its boldest: a novel whose wisdom and lyricism make it one of the most original and insightful speculations on gender ever produced.

Theodore Sturgeon (26 de febrero, 1918 – 8 de mayo, 1985)Estadounidense. A pesar de ser un desconocido entre el gran público, tanto la calidad de su prosa como lo original de sus planteamientos le convirtieron en una influencia determinante para escritores como Ray Bradbury o Samuel R. Delany.

...Dos de los hombres que se cruzaron con él en el patio central estaban embarazados.

No había ningún error posible. Miró de soslayo a su sonriente compañero: el enérgico rostro, los brazos bien musculados y las piernas macizas... cierto, la barbilla era demasiado lisa y - hum - tenía unos músculos pectorales muy prominentes. Así que... vamos a ver. Si "él" era una mujer, entonces todos ellos eran mujeres. Entonces, ¿dónde estaban los hombres...???
