Not sure when it was published or the author's name. The only parts I remember are two prisoners trying to escape because they don't want to be breeders/sex slaves and that there are no names, just job titles for the characters. The twist at the end is the fact that the crew are female and it's men that are being used as breeders/sex slaves. I remember this being a High School reading assignment between 1983-1989 in Canada, but I'm not sure if it was a Canadian or US story.

  • hmmm, did the book appear old or new at the time you read it? – Mikasa Aug 21 '16 at 17:44

    I think it was a few printed papers handed out by the teacher, not an actual book. sorry really can't remember much more. – Sherilee Aug 21 '16 at 17:57

    That's ok; it's proving difficult to look for and so far I have only one potential match, an obscure short story- "The Matter of Seggri" by Ursula Le Guin. I doubt it's the one, but check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Matter_of_Seggri and see if it rings any bells... – Mikasa Aug 21 '16 at 18:01

    wasn't that one, that was published in 1994. I read it sometime between 1983 -1989. In Canada but not sure if it was Canadian literature or US. – Sherilee Aug 21 '16 at 23:05

    Huh. Obviously, they don't have the Puritanical freak-out from school parents over reading material in Canada to the degree they do down here. – PoloHoleSet Aug 22 '16 at 15:49
