Limit of Vision
by Linda Nagata
Ethics and evolution collide in this science fiction thriller. Virgil Copeland is a brilliant young biotechnologist. He and his team have developed an artificial life-form based on bioengineered human neurons. Implanted in test animals, this new life-form enhances brain function. Knowing this, the team can’t resist secretly experimenting on themselves. But when their scheme is discovered, Virgil cannot accept the prospect of losing his enhancements. He flees arrest, taking refuge in the steamy Mekong Delta, where unexpected allies aid him in his quest to preserve this experimental life-form. Together, they ride a whirlwind of runaway biotechnology, with bizarre and unforeseeable consequences that could lead to the next phase of human evolution.
