Description

Programmable memories, fatherless reproduction, nano-tech implants, amphibian-powered scar treatment, full body modification, brain-scanning lie-detectors, inter-species reproduction, self-determining synthetic 'green goo'... Which of these would you wager is pure science fiction, and which currently being developed in the lab? Such is the speed and excitement of today's bio-medical research - sprinting from the starting gun that was the Human Genome Project - it's sometimes hard to tell. In a unique collaboration, fourteen short story writers have been invited to explore the increasingly grey area between the fantastical and that which is already within our reach. Closely collaborating with scientists and ethicists working at the forefronts of their respective fields, each writer has been tasked with predicting some of the potential 'ethical side-effects' of this groundbreaking work. Not all progress, after all, is progressive. And dark forces are afoot that threaten to hi-jack what many declared would be 'the century of biology'.
