Full disclosure: I am the editor of this delightful 11-story anthology. This book explores a biology-focused future with stories ranging from customized pet design to escaping or embracing death based on uploaded or enhanced consciousness... All kinds of great tales, many of which made me laugh out loud in sheer delight.
This was an amazing collection of stories. Usually with anthologies, you get one or two great stories, a few good stories, and the rest are just ok, but with this one, all but one or two were great, and those were still really good. I highly recommend this book. I plan on passing my copy around to all of my friends.
