First published as a serial in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1976.

Publisher's Blurb
Ill luck made Roger Torraway the subject of the Man Plus Program, but it was deliberate human engineering which turned him into a monster Ė a machine perfectly adapted to survive on Mars. For according to the predictions of a government computer, Mars is mankindís only alternative to self-inflicted extinction. But beneath his monstrous exterior, Roger Torraway still carries the burden of a manís mind, a manís soul and a manís agonizing capacity for suffering.

A remarkably sensitive treatment of one of sfís archetypal themes Ė the metamorphosis of man to machine Ė Man Plus is amongst Frederik Pohlís most impressive novels.

FREDERIK POHL is one of the great names of science fiction, active in the field as a writer and editor since 1940. His many books include four renowned collaborations with the late C.M. Kornbluth. Amongst these are The Space Merchants and Wolfbane, which appears as Number 7 in the Gollancz Classic SF series. Man Plus marked a triumphant return to writing novels after a break of almost a decade.
