Product description

Product Description

From Sci-fi master, Michael Kurland comes a collection of eight short stories spanning the author’s career.

The invention of a teleportation device opens up new possibilities for the nations of the world. But possibilities can go wrong, and don’t always fall neatly on the side of good.

Can one fight what is in their blood? Or is it in one’s fate to succumb to their nature?

When genetically engineered soldiers are manufactured to protect the world, where is the line drawn? Do the ends justify the means or is this a gross misuse of science?

Infinitely imaginative, Kurland peers from different angles at human belief and behaviour and considers how we might react if our reality was turned ever so slightly sideways.

About Michael Kurland



Michael Kurland grew up in New York City, attended Columbia University, spent four years in the Army, much of it in Europe, and now lives in California with his partner, novelist Linda Robertson, a dog, a cat, and an occasional visiting family of raccoons. He has been a teacher of obscure subjects to disinterested children, the editor of a magazine even more idiosyncratic than himself, a seeker of absent persons, a magical explainer, and guest lecturer at numerous unrelated events. Kurland has written a dozen or so science fiction novels, a brace of mysteries, and several books that fit into that tenuous genre known as “mainstream.” He has been nominated for an Edgar (twice) and for the American Book Award. His books have been translated into eleven other languages.
