Stranger Deskins

Utilizing the recognizable, asexual green Martian form, Wiseman writes not of gender, but instead curiously, humorously, and perhaps unintentionally poses a question: what is it like to live without the perspectives of gender roles?…The title couldn’t be more appropriate for this enchantingly heretical series of work… [and] its deviation from the usual account of aliens and how they might reflect and deflect humanity, and womanhood specifically, as historical outsiders.
