Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful (Paperback)Arwen Elys Dayton (author)
- In stock
Are you ready for the future?
Black Mirror with a touch of Westworld re-wiring, Stronger, Faster and More Beautiful is a novel in six interconnected parts about what it means to be human - and where those boundaries lie.
Set in our world, spanning the near to distant future, the author, Arwen Elys Dayton, explores the possible consequences of advanced medical breakthroughs and how they may shape and reshape humanity. From organ donation to plastic surgery to full bodily reconstruction, these stories take you by your (for now, organic) hand and lead you into a future where the line between person and machine becomes increasingly blurred.
Deeply thoughtful, poignant, horrifying, and action-packed, this novel strikes new ground while also seeming so strangely... likely.
Just try to disconnect.

'Gripping, provoking and elegantly written, this interlocking suite of stories explores the implications of genetic modification on our destiny. There's something of Ursula Le Guin in its calm, intelligent examination of human nature's impact on technology, politics and religion. An there's a twist at the end worthy of H.G. Wells.' - The Daily Mail
