Please help me find this book; it has been bothering me for years!

A future after a virus has been cured. The cure causes mutation on the descendants. Feared these mutants are banished to another planet used as a prison. Main characters are teenagers, protagonist is lion-like with strength and agility, he has a green skinned girlfriend and a four armed nerdy friend. That's all I can remember. Would appreciate any help.

  • Approximately when did you read it? Any idea on what the cover looked like or names of the characters? – mkennedy Feb 19 '16 at 3:14
  • I read it about 25 years ago, when I was a teenager. No idea on cover or names. Sorry. – Kevin Feb 22 '16 at 23:52

I just stumbled across this, I read the same book as well about 15 years ago. Its called Planet of the Gawfs by Steve Vance. It was a great sci-fi read, however. Don't get your hopes up. He never wrote another book in the supposed 'series' as the book would have led you to believe. Vance continued his writing career mostly in his involvement in The Simpsons comics through the '90s.

    Hello and welcome to SFF! We are a Q/A site not a forum so your answer would be better if you removed the tangential information and opinions and added details about why this story matches what is in the OP. – TheLethalCarrot Apr 6 '18 at 13:38

    As @TheLethalCarrot says, if you could add why this book is a good match it would make this an acceptable answer. – JohnP Apr 6 '18 at 14:21
