A delectable spread of twelve science fiction short stories, all poised at the point of the ‘Just Possible’! Flawlessly blending scientific truths and the flight of imagination, the stories exemplify all that good science fiction should be From a pandemonium in paradise that is resolved with the help of science to the unforeseen side effects of gene-therapy on a Catwoman wannabe, or explaining how nanotechnology became a murderer’s best friend or how plants wrecked revenge on humans; all the stories explore interesting possibilities. The fabric of each story is woven with warmth, understanding and humor with the warp and weft of science running through it.
