Maureen Birnbaum

Last night I finished reading Maureen Birnbaum, Barbarian Swordsperson by George Alec Effinger. Maureen is a young woman who whooshes from one planet to another, having many different adventures. Each adventure is set in different world from science fiction such Edgar Rice Burroughs' Mars world and Pellucidar. The adventures are often humorous and told in first person by Maureen, who tells them to her friend Bitsy Spiegelman. I enjoyed these adventures. Maureen Birnbaum at the Earth's Core being the funniest and the interaction between Bitsy and Maureen was priceless.
