INTERESTING TIMES: Book Two of the Chinese Curse ($15.95) by G.S. Cole & N.C. Shapero.
Late summer, 2094 may be 'Late Winter' for the Greater United States. Climate change has happened along with wars and political upheaval. Prosperity is precarious and security is scarce, even as technology produces biological miracles like regeneration treatments - for those who can afford them - and Uplifts.
Most Humans have it hard, but Uplifts have it harder. Carl Siam is a detective on the Los Angeles Monad police force, but he can't keep a partner and it's a good day when he's called "kittycat" instead of "abomination". Even so, he's one of the lucky ones!
This situation can't last. Something's got to change.
Part Two of a three-part story. Cover by Christina Hanson.
