Here is the cover art and synopsis of the upcoming novel Bio-Punk: Stories from the Far Side of Research by Toby Litt, Sara Maitland & Jane Rogers.

Here’s the synopsis:

A collaborative work between scientists and ethicists — working at the forefronts of their respective fields — and short story writers, this collection attempts to predict some of the potential ethical side-effects of the groundbreaking biomedical research currently being developed. Exploring the increasingly gray area between the fantastical and that which is already within our reach—including programmable memories, nano-tech implants, fatherless reproduction, and interspecies reproduction—this unique volume fuses fact with fiction and speculates on the future of scientific progress. This book will appeal to science fiction fans and academics alike.
