2008 Gaylactic Spectrum Award Recommended Short List (Short Fiction) under the title PRIME SUSPECT) A lonely being in a lonely galaxy… Heron Meed has two strikes against it. It is a hemaphrodite in a galaxy dominated by two-gendered beings. And it’s a convicted criminal. After six years of incarceration, Heron is trying to start a new life, but that isn’t easy when so many avenues are closed to it. It finally finds a refuge of sorts on the Castor Xeni Orbital and a surcease from its pain in the arms of voluptuous Subah Doisson, but then various systems on the Orbital start getting sabotaged. With a small engineering population, and Heron the only newcomer to the station, how can the hermaphrodite prove its innocence amid a sea of entrenched prejudice? (2016 This book, previously titled PRIME SUSPECT, has been re-edited for this edition. A compact list of people, places and things is also included)
