Format: Hardcover
This is a science fiction novel of gender confusions across worlds, a fact that goes unmentioned in the above book description. You neglect to observe the main plot point of CROSSING INFINITY: that the alien refugee, Corylanus, is able to shift gender, and does so under extreme emotional pressure, from male to female, and back again. This book explores notions of gender identity -- and through that exploration underscores the beauty of unconditional love.

Format: Hardcover
What can you say about a book that transcends multiple genres to tell a story with both profound sweetness while really pushing the edge -- multiple edges in fact?

Karen Haber, who is known as the First Lady of Science Fiction and a good friend to many, myself included, has the rare ability to say something so true and so well that she changes the very way you see the world -- or worlds.

"Cory liked the cats for their silken grace, immense vanity, and playful carnivorous impulses. What charming quirk of nature had made these elegant little killing machines?"

Adults as well as the right kind of kid should buy this and read this for an experience of kind and honest bravery in facing a strange, sometimes hostile, sometimes indecipherable world for a really delicious reading experience, an experience you simply won't be able to find anywhere else. Bravo!

By Mark Tier on February 14, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautifully constructed story. I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed it: rather than the regular science fiction novel I anticipated I was absorbed in one that might fit better in the "young adult romance" category. Just the same, I had to stay up way past my bedtime to finish it.

As a writer, I'm jealous of Karen Haber's sparing use of words and scenes. Only an inspired editor could find anything to cut. The characters' reactions are short, sharp, and almost always emotional rather than physical (i.e., violent).

This is the first Haber novel I've read; it won't be the last!!

By Ventura Angelo on December 19, 2007
Format: Hardcover
In the near future, student Jay finds Cory, a strange boy abandoned near a road. This boy appears androgynous and very alien; that's because he's a real alien, of an humanoid species that can change gender at will. Humorous, fast, and pleasant to read, this novel is eminently readable and fun. Il like the prefaces to the chapters, excerpts from a wacky DJ 's radio transmission,too.
Read them, they're a worthy addition to you cross-gendered books' library section!

I really enjoyed reading Crossing Infinity. As someone who usually gets distracted and doesn't finish books, I found this one fun and easy to get through. It also delves into some interesting issues, arising from one of the protagonists being a poly-gendered alien. The characters are endearing, real, very human (even when they're not actually humans), and easy to relate to.

Karen Haber, a friend of mine, is a talented author who addresses interesting issues in a way that keeps the story fun and fresh.
