The Human Front follows the adventures of a young Scottish guerrilla, drawn into low-intensity sectarian war in a high-intensity future, when the arrival of an alien intruder (complete with saucer) calls for new tactics and strange alliances. MacLeod's unique vision is developed even further in a new commentary written especially for this edition, and in his delightful personal account of a Hebridean youth's first encounter with the post-capitalist world. Also featured is our Outspoken Interview showcasing the author's deep erudition and skeptical, mordant wit.

This novella can also be found in the anthologies The Year's Best Science Fiction: Nineteenth Annual Collection (2002), edited by Gardner Dozois, and Infinities (2002), edited by Peter Crowther. It is included in the collections Giant Lizards from Another Star (2006) and The Human Front (2013).
