    Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this name.John Boyd was the primary pen name of Boyd Bradfield Upchurch, an American science fiction author.


    I found the novel to be an imaginative sci-fi thriller with a generous amounts of espionage and romance. I loved all the literary references and how well the alien Kyra was portrayed throughout her memorable adventure on Earth. I'm surprised that I had never heard of this book or the author and only stumbled upon it by deciding to read books that begin with "The Girl with the". This is a very good novel. I give it 4 stars plus.

    i have this fascination with old cheap sci fi paperbacks. I was lucky to stumble onto john boyd (thanks chuck!).This one in particular is about a beautiful alien and her crew that are more insect then human, but gorgeous by human standards. A man falls in love with her - but the problem? she is one of those insects that eats her man after she mates with him. It is a touching story of unrequited love sweet and memorable a keeper on my bookshelf.

    A really striking book from the unfairly forgotten 195s/60s author John Boyd. Superficially it is the story of an alien spaceship landing and asking for some radioactive material to power its ship. But Boyd makes a lot of the whole inter-agency business of who would deal with such an alien request, the paranoia and mind games of CIA etc. And there's yet another layer because the alien in question is very attractive to members of the opposite sex and potentially deadly.Although there aspects of m [...]

    I read this book within the year it came out and have remembered it ever since. The imagery has stayed with me. I like the surprise in it also. Now that I have the title I am going to try to get my hands on it again.

    Cover author John Boyd. Grade A+.
