Born With the Dead was a fast-paced, yet horribly slow. It left you feeling tired. When a work has that much effect, there's something to it. The Saliva Tree has brilliant use of dialogue. These people are just average people living in extraordinary cirucmstances; just what the core of science ficiton is. The aliens rather reminded me of truly evil Bunniculas, completely without innocencence. A great "alien invader" story. They are both outstanding pieces of literature, and I'm glad to have bought this Tor Double.
