Fantastic New Utopian Fiction Novel

Original post made by Thomas Sigel, Old Palo Alto, on Sep 27, 2006

Check out HERA or EMPATHY, a work of utopian fiction by William Leiss. This meaty novel explores all kinds of issues-- religion, philosophy, bioethics and more.

Hera is one of twelve sisters genetically modified by their neurscientist parents to have superior mental faculties. During their teenage years the sisters were forced to flee for their lives from the remote Indonesian village where they had been born.

Later, Hera challenges her father's right to have engineered his children, using the Biblical story of creation against him. But one day she discovers that the sisters' genes contain modifications that their parents didn't intend.
