About the Author

Michael Blumlein is a medical doctor and a respected SF writer, whose novels and stories have introduced new levels of both horror and wonder into the fiction of scientific speculation. His work as a cutting-edge medical researcher and internist at San Francisco's UCSF Medical Center informs his acclaimed stories and novels as they explore what it means to be truly--if only temporarily--human.

Reviews

"Blumlein has an exceptional vision, and he conveys it with exceptional talent." --Washington Post
"Blindingly brilliant . . . Blumlein is beyond any genre . . . a genuinely great writer." --Katherine Dunn, author, Geek Love
"A wonderful and disturbing writer." --William Gibson
"Offbeat and unpredictable . . . a talent that bears watching." --Publishers Weekly
"Disturbing. More!" --Joe Lansdale, creator, Hap and Leonard
"The title piece, original to the collection, creates a delightfully strange atmosphere of simultaneous intimacy and intellectual detachment in an autobiographical first-person narrative of how a doctor deals with the 'morbid curiosity' of experiencing his own cancer as both patient and professional." --Publishers Weekly
"Blumlein's voice takes on a degree of urgency here, but it only reminds us of the deeply humane urgency that his fiction has always exhibited." --Paula Guran, Locus Magazine
