Time is running out for Joseph, which is ironic considering he's immortal, but no one ever said that it was easy being a god. Baker nails her 20th-century targets: societal, religious and oh-so-personal hypocrisy. Family blog devoted to the author.
Now, whether a work of fiction adheres to historical fact is, in terms of artistic merit, in and of itself irrelevant. Witness the cheap shots some critics have taken at the movies Elizabeth and Shakespeare in Love for their anachronisms and inaccurate retelling of historical events, as if the Bard himself was ever overly concerned about authenticity in penning his own histories because, after all, 'tis the play that's the thing. So if Baker wants to depart from a realistic depiction of the times her characters visit, that's fine as long as the overriding artistic purpose is served. But for the life of me, I don't get the point of why Baker has the Chumash who happen to be a real tribe, by the way speak in 20th century slang: " So anyway, Uncle Coyote.

More seriously, the story of their transplantation itself lacks much dramatic drive. It seems to me that the story is really just a background to drop some hints that all may not be well in the 24th century for mortals. Or for those Immortals who have begun to question their assignments from imperfect -- and quite possibly severely neurotic-humans.
The mortals who control the Company if indeed they actually control it are depicted as fairly pathetic creatures, afraid of the cyborgs that supposedly serve them. What happens once the intellectually and physically superior Immortals eventually live to meet their masters in the 24th Century -- who will be serving whom?
Or, to prevent this possibility, perhaps the Immortals will not be allowed to co-exist with their creators?
