More fecund than any book of its kind. No other writer has a menagerie of fleshed out characters like Erikson.
It's amazing to me that the people who like other works by Morgan don't like this one because of the sexual content. Most of his work has explicit sexual content! This just happens to be the first that portrays flesh touching flesh were both the subjects involved have the same plumbing, his other works are just as sexually explicit. It's also amazing to me that such intricate and complicated subject matter can be liked or disliked purely on the basis of what shape the sexual subjects body parts have. I wonder how readers would have felt if one of Morgan's virtual reality sex scenes from his Takeshi novels were done with two men entering the virtual reality construct but one of them taking on the aspect of a woman and having hetero style sex with the other man, would that still be gay sex? Would people still be offended? It's a shame such a great book, which "The Steel Remains" is, should be criticized with such nonsense. If you like Morgan's other books, almost all of which have some explicit sexual content, you will like this one too, unless of course you are bigoted towards homosexuals.
