As he would discover, however, there were many times ahead when the joy of single fatherhood would be tempered by a single profound thought: What the hell was I thinking? The Martian Child is a novelized portrait of Gerrolds sometimes exhilarating and sometimes exasperating experiences with his new son. Dennis was an emotionally troubled child suffering from a variety of personality disorders stemming from his turbulent childhood. Born of addicted parents Dennis was shuffled from one foster home to the next with dizzying frequency. Impermanence became his lot. Not surprisngly, he turned inward and began to inhabit a private fantasy world in which he believed he was a Martian. Then David Gerrold -- a single gay man with a dream of becoming a father -- entered his life. Nothing for them would ever be the same.
