Hurray, somebody else thought Gen was female! There was just something going 
on in the writing that sounded a little too clever, and the first thing I 
thought of was that the hero's gender was being concealed, so I went back and 
checked every step of the way until I found out whether he was really a he, 
and it was a while before one found out, as I recall (not really so very 
long, but long when one was reading at about one-quarter speed, due to 
checking for pronouns in the road).
