As much a sociological tract as a novel, still it's by Barry B. Longyear so "Slag Like Me" is bound to be interesting and worth reading.
From the context of today and the Biden administration's policy of an open southern border, the premise of "Slag" has become even more relevant.
How do people treat other people, especially different other people? What should government's response be? (Government involvement always worsens any problem or perceived problem, but that is my position and not necessarily author Longyear's. It's also an obvious fact, made more obvious daily.)
The story is set in a future Los Angeles, where every kind of person, every ethnicity, every orientation, already resides, so its premise is entirely plausible.
Not Barry Longyear's greatest book -- that might still be "Infinity Hold" -- but still of interest and, as I already said, worth reading.
Author Longyear makes clear he owes a debt to the book "Black Like Me," also worth reading.

Esta novela corta de ciencia ficción era un tratado contra la xenofobia, oculto tras un escenario de pura ciencia ficción. Dos facciones en guerra. Los humanos y los draconianos. Uno de los humanos, Willis Davidge, un piloto de caza galáctico, naufraga junto a un draconiano, Jeriba Shiga, otro piloto, en un planeta con un ecosistema realmente hostil. Para poder sobrevivir deberán de olvidar sus diferencias y colaborar en su mutua supervivencia. Pero las cosas no serán tan fáciles y los prejuicios raciales aflorarán, en más de una ocasión poniendo en tela de juicio la supervivencia de los dos personajes.… (mais)

I really enjoyed this book. In part because it's not what you think it's going to be when you first start reading it... how good can a book about prisoners dropped onto a planet to fend for themselves be? It's great to see the group come together and work on forming a functional society.

Turns out this is a book in a series and I really want to get the other two and read them as well.
