A collection of dark, twisting tales and speculative essays that explore the dance between human ideas and the cutting edges of science and technology. These are challenging, disturbing excursions into the edges of culture.

Collected here for the first time, these stories will take you into the borderland between technology and emotion.

Stories: Pilgrims literally write their religion into their blood. The secret story of a young girl after her mother suicides. A scientist with Parkinson's disease discovers that some cures are worse than the disease. Six stories about the human condition on the edge of biotechnology and neuroscience.

Essays: From a hillbilly's impression of the Columbia disaster, to an alternative periodic table, to the philosophy of science and a serious critique of creationism.

Chris Lawson is the winner of the Aurealis and Ditmar awards.

"The truly outstanding new find in Australian SF writing." - Judges' Report, Aurealis Awards 2000.
