Description, from Lois Tilton [Locus]: "Mai, having migrated to Shanti, has been infected with a parasite native to the world.... Mai, ante-parasite, was a selfish and inconsiderate daughter; now she has become awash in welcoming hormones and thus a better person, although her primary tie is to “the dear creatures of the air”. From a not-Mai point of view, her metamorphosis would probably be considered horror. "
