Overview

Warning—this dangerous collection of subversive science fiction tosses well-aimed bombs at deserving targets. Here you can climb the corporate ladder using homicidal bioengineering, attempt ideological recipes for theoretical desserts, or simply try to survive Kurt Cobain High. In her much-lauded first collection, award-winning author Eileen Gunn ( Questionable Practices ) tackles politics, identity, and technology with intelligence, wit, and crackling energy.
