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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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

'Powerful, poignant, and action-packed.' - Bustle

'A work of unforgettable vision and imagination. This book is everything I love about science fiction.' -Jay Kristoff

'A deep and suddenly necessary exploration of the beautiful and terrible futures we face. Every story leaves you desperate for more. Somehow, the further from today Dayton travels, the more real it becomes.' - Hank Green

'Haunting, challenging and provocative - this is an extraordinary book. I can't can't stop thinking about it.' - Amie Kaufman, author of The Illuminae Files

'Will send shivers down your spine.' - Teen Vogue
