Review Project HALFSHEEP Project HALFSHEEP Characters ä 2 Susan Hasler Î 2 Read & download The lords of a dying planet send Piyat a terrified “volunteer” on a voyage across the universe The reluctant alien crashes in the fear washed landscape of Cold War America near the site of the nation’s first nuclear test Capt. Fictional aliens have visited Earth many times in the pastSome have been friendly others terrifying but none even ET have been as human as Piyat the unwilling female volunteer shot to Earth from a dying planet in author Susan Hasler s excellent Project HALFSHEEP Or How the Agency s Alien Got HighI found this to be a wonderful book on many levelsIt is for example beautifully written Hasler has a real command of the language and her talents are on full display in this novel of life in the United States in the years following World War II Her descriptions of people of places and of events are spot on and they rope the reader into her narrativeAnd what a narrative it is Full of all the paranoia that marked America in the Age of McCarthy and other right wing demagogues who cynically used the Red Scare to win elections and Constitutional concessions from the people they were allegedly trying to protect Their paranoia allows them to treat Piyat with disdain and a total lack of humanity They imprison her experiment on her and treat her roughly utterly failing to realize that she is intelligent than they are by a long measure Her treatment because she is alien closely parallels the treatment of Trudie the woman who first recognizes that Piyat is special in a way the buttoned down fear driven men around her do not Like Piyat Trudie is also imprisoned Her cell is a loveless marriage to a cruel man who controls her life and her propertyPerhaps that s why she and Piyat bond so uicklyIn any event Hasler s dual story lines give her the opportunity to make some very sharp observations about the status of women during the Fifties and the presentIn addition Hasler who spent than two decades working for the CIA casts a knowing eye on the workings of it and other intelligence agencies back in the day when it was often considered disloyal to voice any criticism of the government and its workings It was a time when even newspaper reporters and editors took uiet payoffs from the CIA and other agencies for privately informing on co workers and people they came into contact with A terrible time in American history despite the Herculean efforts of television and the film industry to paint it as idyllic Hasler s descriptions of the self righteous men who ran the country s spy agencies in those dark days perfectly captures in my opinion their lack of respect for women their recklessness their paranoia and their almost complete perversion of the American idealThis is an excellent novel that will sometimes make you smile sometimes make you laugh and sometimes make you wonder why we Americans are always so ready to judge on appearances aloneIn short it is a novel that will make you thinkI highly recommend it

In 1953 the fledgling CIA under Director Allen Dulles launched a mind control program called MKUltra The project was an experiment on human subjects with drugs that included LSD years before Timothy Leary turned on and dropped out Caught up in the anti Communist hysteria of the time the CIA was searching for new ways to interrogate and ultimately control prisoners just as they imagined the Communists were already doing These illegal experiments resulted in several deaths most famously that of a US Army biological weapons researcher named Frank Olsen Only two decades later did word of MKUltra the CIA and LSD reach the public through an expose in the New York Times and subseuent Congressional investigationsIn Project HALFSHEEP 21 year CIA veteran Susan Hasler satirizes MKUltra in a fanciful science fiction novel about an alien captured by the Agency and subjected to years of experiments with mind altering drugs Like her earlier novel Intelligence Project HALFSHEEP refers to the CIA as the Mines and peoples the Agency with a misbegotten collection of rich entitled misfits undercover officers suffering from PTSD and long suffering bureaucratsThe central character in the novel is a three foot tall creature from the planet Utorb who has been sent unwillingly on a mission to scout out Earth as a possible new home for her dying race The alien has enormous eyes webbed fingers ears in her palms wool on her butt and a nine inch nose that causes her to be known by many of her captors as Dick Face She uacks like a duck Her name is unclear When volunteered for the mission to Earth they took my humble name away and called me Piyat which in the high language means brave one and in the common tongue idiot She prefers to be called Alice Webster after what become her two favorite books Alice in Wonderland and Webster s Unabridged Dictionary Oh and she s a great chess playerProject HALFSHEEP also tackles the perennial conspiracy theory about an alien landing at Roswell New Mexico Piyat crash lands in New Mexico in 1947 far from Roswell To prevent discovery of the real crash site the CIA sets up a fake site near the townAs an analyst at the CIA Susan Hasler was involved in tracking down Osama bin Laden She held other positions at the Agency among them serving as a Russian linguist and speechwriter for three CIA Directors Project HALFSHEEP was the second of her three novels

Review Project HALFSHEEP Project HALFSHEEP Characters ä 2 Susan Hasler Î 2 Read & download A Top Secret program to test mind control drugs But Piyat is not so easy to controlPROJECT HALFSHEEP is a darkly funny blend of science fiction and political satire informed by the real life excesses of the CIA in its earliest year. This story was a very skillfully crafted humorous yet suspenseful jab at various government entities alien ones included I found myself laughing aloud on a number of occasions as I read this uniue treasure and despite the humorous nature of the relaying I found it uite suspenseful and tense throughoutRemembering how the humans freuently commented that my proboscis gave them the willies I rubbed it against Vince s hand He moved back so uickly he knocked his chair over and sprawled on the floor I smiled at him giving him a view of my undazzling chewing ridges The others laughed and this time not at meThe personal interactions between the alien Doug and his human handlers are described with rich emotional narrative that clearly conveyed the personalities of the characters The story was well balanced and had just the right degree of side story to round out the rough edges on detailI found myself wanting to know Doug Lee and LloydI unfortunately already know Avery Susan Hasler did a praiseworthy job of embodying in her characters the various major personality types one comes to be familiar with in various governmental organizations Agency Military or Bureau Despite the familiar traits Hasler gives them enough individuality that you don t realize that s what she has done I was curious as to why this was listed in satire but it is very clear now She has successfully lampooned uite a wide range of characters and agenciesI would recommend this book to anyone as it crosses many genres is uproariously funny at times and paints a rich picture of human and alien relationships Bravo
