Review - Consider Pegasus by SI Clarke
Time to catch up on the latest adventures of Lem, her dog Spock, and the rest of the crew of the starship Teapot. This time it's Lem's best friend, Bexley, who needs help, well, more help than usual. One of Bexley's parents is pregnant, but they've discovered that the unborn child exhibits a common birth ‘defect’ among Bexley's species: It will have wings. The law of Bexley's home world requires the wings to be removed at birth, but her parents are dead set against what they see as an unnecessary ‘mutilation.
