Combining complex science with skillfully executed prose,
these edgy, award-winning tales explore the shifting border
between the known and the alien. The beauty and peril of
technology and the passion and penalties of conviction merge
in narratives that are by turns dark, satiric, and
introspective. Among these bold storylines: a seemingly
humanized monster from John Carpenterâ€™s The Thing reveals
the true villains in an Antarctic showdown; an artificial
intelligence shields a biologically enhanced prodigy from
her overwhelmed parents; a deep-sea diver discovers her true
nature lies not within the confines of her mission but in
the depths of her psyche; a court psychologist analyzes a
psychotic graduate student who has learned to reprogram
reality itself; and a father tries to hold his broken family
together in the wake of an ongoing assault by sentient
rainstorms. Gorgeously saturnine and exceptionally powerful,
these collected fictions are both intensely thought-
provoking and impossible to forget.
