HELVA HAD BEEN BORN HUMAN
...but only her brain had been saved--saved to be schooled, programmed and implanted in the sleek, titanium body og an intergalactic scout ship. But first she had to choose a human partner--male or female--to share her exhilarating escapades in space!
Her life was to be rich and rewarding...resplendent with daring adventures and endless excitement, beyond the wildest dreams of mere mortals.
Gifted with the voice of an angel and being virtually indestructible, Helva XH-834 anticipated a sublime immortality.
Then one day she fell in love!
Ah...this is such a sweet book. The first few chapters read like the short stories that they originally were, but that doesn't take away from the story as a whole. I'd say this is one of my favorite SF stories and would probably recommend it to any romance reader who's interested in trying out some SF. For a story written in the 1960s, this is still a great one and one I'll continue to enjoy.
