Sparky Valentine, an actor and wanted murderer roaming the universe with a theatrical group, who can transform his appearance and his sex with magnetic implants, finds himself nearing both home and a confrontation with justice

Blackwell North Amer
All the universe is a stage, and Sparky Valentine is its itinerant thespian. He makes his way from planet to planet as part of a motley theater troupe, bringing Shakespeare - a version of it anyway - to the outer reaches of earth's solar system. Here Sparky plies his trade, transforming himself from young to old, fat to thin, man to woman, by altering magnetic implants beneath his skin. Indispensable hardware for a career actor and an interstellar con man wanted for murder - for while Sparky Valentine may have a song on his heart, he also has a price on his head. But his galactic roamings are bringing him closer to home, closer to justice - and closer to the truth of his strange and prolonged existence...

The description of aggressive, over-ambitious father was so great, it gave me nightmares.
