Seeking Science Fiction 

What are some good SF works on parasitism and sex/reproduction? I’m looking for something in the vein of Bloodchild or The Left Hand of Darkness. Not so much “All You Zombies—“ because that was about an individual, rather than a world.

1. Greg Egan's Diaspora contains very nice description of "birth" and childhood of post-human person;

2. The whole Hyperion series (including endymion) has parasites;

3. Life Artificial: "birth" and life of an AI:

4. Lives of Tao:

5. Orson Scott Card: Ender series books 3 and 4.

6. Robert Charles Wilson: Spin series (parasites are parasiting/symbioting on the civilisation rather than individual)
