Review of Frederik Pohl’s 1976 Nebula Award-winning novel Man Plus

Bill the sci-fi guy of the blog From A Sci-Fi Standpoint has a written a nice review of Frederik Pohl's novel Man Plus (1976), which won the Nebula Award for Best Novel in the mid-1970s. As Bill notes, most of the novel takes place in a laboratory on Earth, where a fellow named Roger Torroway is transformed into a cyborg capable of surviving the harsh environment on Mars. “A fairly average reading experience, overall,” Bill gives Man Plus a rating of 3 stars out of 5.
