Book 3 of 5 in the War Against the Chtorr Series.

The Chtorr series was originally planned as a trilogy, but as the story became more intricate, Gerrold realized that three books would not be enough for him to tell the entire story. For a time, he was uncertain how many books there would be in the end, but finally settled on a heptalogy. As of 2018, four books have been completed

In A Rage For Revenge, his third War Against the Chtorr book, David Gerrold increases the amount of homosexual material markedly, and pumps up the pop psychology. Just wait, and stop badgering Gerrold. com User, October 4, 2002. Good things come to those who wait.

Gerrold is the author of the War Against the Chtorr series of books, about an invasion of Earth by mysterious aliens: A Matter for Men (1983), A Day for Damnation (1985), A Rage for Revenge (1989), and A Season for Slaughter (1993). He eventually announced that what was initially supposed to be a trilogy would in fact require seven books.

This is a must-read, but is still my least favorite of the first four books so far. It has moments of brilliance, and as advertised in the prologue, is very didactic. It also has a long stretch that veers from the main plot and is easily my least favorite part of the series so far. I was also a bit embarassed to be reading the sections while I was on a plane where there is some child abuse. Fictional or not, it's hard to read that stuff...

In this book, our protagonist, to put it mildly, gets mind f***ed over and over again. The book is mostly about his ability to cope with the things going on around him and to fight his own demons.

You find out a lot more about the Chtorr. I guarantee you'll look at them in a different light after completing this one.

(Insert typical rant about Gerrold taking too long to complete the series.)

I originally bought these books after I saw a recommendation on an LGBT sci-fi book list. Most "apocalypse survivor" stories conveniently ignore the existence of LGBT people. The assumption is that we can't contribute because we won't breed. First off, I would be more than happy to make babies for the sake of the human species in the event of Z-Day, Alien Invasion, Armageddon, or whatever the doomsday situation! Then there's the other assumption that if you can't breed, then you're useless. Even if you're sterile, there's plenty to do! Foraging for the community, defending it, caring for children, etc. So I was happy to hear about a sci-fi series with a bi protagonist.

In an earlier version of this review, I was overly harsh. I made some assumptions regarding the author's personal views based on the portrayal of his characters (never the best idea). Gerrold's setting isn't neat, nice, or politically correct. His main character, Jim, isn't meant to be a flag bearer for the LGBT community. He's a complicated individual who has been thrown into extraordinary circumstances. He certainly isn't the hero I expected, but he's still the best chance that Earth has, flaws and all.

The War Against the Chtorr is quite different from most Sci-Fi alien invasion stories. So far there have been no space battles or even any sign of spaceships. The nature of the invasion is ecological. Somehow, an entire alien ecology has taken root on earth, ranging from bacteria to megafauna. The worst of these are the Chtorr worms, so named for their screeching battlecry. Actually, wait, the bacteria would be the worst, since they wipeout nearly 80% of humanity in a wave of plagues.

The scattered remnants of humanity struggle to put their lives back together, all while alien plants and animals begin to outcompete native species. The gigantic Chtorr worms are the most visible symbol of this takeover, with their voracious appetites for human flesh. Is this the precursor to a "real" invasion by an unknown sentient species? Or is this the true invasion itself? Questions like this make the book a great page-turner. Each new revelation of the Chtorran ecological infestation just makes you want to learn more.
