In Arthur “Pedo” Clarke books, alien technology consists of extremely large phallic objects with minds of their own. At least, this covers the “Odyssey” and “Rama” books and I can’t remember anything else he wrote.
You obviously haven’t read Imperial Earth.
I have! That’s the one with a dude who has three generations of himself at different ages, who breaks the clone incest cycle by stealing DNA from some other guy who used to fuck this girl he was in love with. Also, aliens are godlike sea urchins. Something like that?
Yep. That’s the one. You forgot to mention the overt bisexuality and Clarke using the last moments of falling into a singularity as a thinly veiled allegory to homosexual orgasm.
Homosexual orgasms! Not Liek Other Orgasms (TM)
I don’t remember this from the book. Are you sure you’re not remembering another little-known Clarke classic, “Bareback Event Horizon”?
You mean “Naked Singularity”, right?
That was Assimov, men.
