Stories to bend the mind and soul
First, the law. A time traveler confronts a judge to prevent four years of war. An author undergoes suspended animation to preserve his copyrights and escape his creditors. Then, the heart. A medical accident robs a husband of 20 years of marriage. A soldier mother struggles to tell the difference between her daughter and the alien enemy.
Exploring the seams where humanity and technology, society and individuality intersect, Nebula- and Sturgeon-nominated author Kenneth Schneyer presents thirteen mind-bending, thought-provoking tales of near and far futures that will amuse, amaze, and unsettle. The law will change, and the heart will change, and the heart will change the law. These stories confront the question of just what makes and keeps us human.
"The stories here are formally ingenious, even startling, and at the same time full of heart; the combination is brilliant and delightful. More please!" -- Kim Stanley Robinson, author of 2312 and Shaman: A Novel of the Ice Age
