  • Italian edition -- full jacket

  • From a review of the Italian edition, machine translated:

    From raw reality, the anthology slips into the imaginary world with Aeliana by Bev Vincent, who has as protagonist a mutant girl hunted by the police. In a plot full of action, fits the moving story of an unpredictable bond: the one that is established between the creature and the policewoman who finds her, a duty bound but also moved by an unavoidable maternal instinct.

Howdy, Stranger!
