Size: 5 x 7.5
Page count: 128
Subjects: Science Fiction
The innovative novels and stories of Michael Blumlein, MD, have introduced new levels of both terror and wonder into the fiction of scientific speculation. His work as a medical researcher and internist at San Francisco’s UCSF Medical Center informs his tales of biotech, epigenetics, brain science, and what it means to be truly if only temporarily human.
Plus… A selection of short stories with Blumlein’s signature mix of horror, “hard” science, and wicked humor. “Fidelity” coolly deconstructs adultery with the help of an exuberant tumor, an erotic cartoon, and a male malady. “Y(ou)r Q(ua)ntifi(e)d S(el)f” will reset your Fitbit and your workout as well. “Paul and Me” is a love story writ extra-large, in which an Immortal from Fantasy comes down with a distinctly human disorder. In the chilling “Know How, Can Do” a female Frankenstein brings romance to life in the cold light of the lab.
And Featuring:Our overly intrusive Outspoken Interview, in which the ethics of experimental medicine, animal surgery, the poetry of prose, cult film acclaim, Charles Ludlam, Darwin, and gender dysphoria all submit to examination.
“Blumlein has an exceptional vision, and he conveys it with exceptional talent.”
“Blindingly brilliant… Blumlein is beyond any genre… a genuinely great writer.”
—Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love
“A wonderful and disturbing writer.”
“Offbeat and unpredictable… a talent that bears watching.”
—Joe Lansdale, creator of the Hap and Leonard series
