What Others Are Saying

"From four-armed men to brainscan: biotech perspectives"

"Regenesis" by Cynthia Ward (a female writer from Seattle) paints a peculiar image of the future: anything is possible thanks to biotechnology. Six-fingered guitar player geniuses juggle the strings, 3-eyed women quiver their eyelashes and geneticians grow tails (proving evolution theory right and Christianity wrong) while four-armed prophets talk about the end of the world.

— Kömlõdi Ferenc
Cyberia, November 2002.
