Summary (From the publisher):

As scientists work to unravel humanity's blueprints, the potential benefits of genetic engineering become clearer. But our path is dotted with the familiar pitfalls of new technology. Such an intimate knowledge of human mechanics could lead to magnificent breakthrough in medicine—or smash our romantic notions of what it means to be human. We might solve the riddle of cancer—but we might also create a world where genetic perfection robs us of the uncertainty that makes life compelling. We may look in the mirror and find beauty—or horror...

In this thought-provoking anthology, eleven cutting-edge science fiction writers explore both the promise and peril of genetic engineering.
