to bullethead- I have over 3,000 sf pocket books in my collection dating back over 50 years. While reading your message a book by Frederic Pohl titled Man Plus came to mind. However this book was published in 1977. If you read the book in the late 60's early 70's this could not have been the one. If you could provide the author of the book you are searching for I may be of some help. I have read to much sf to be able to remember every single one. Some stand out more than others. Contact me at email@example.com or leave a new message on the board. I am a new member, just signed up yesterday. I am waiting for a response to my question. Good luck in your search.
