Interview: Arwen Elys Dayton, author of Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful

Jan 8, 2019

Arwen Elys Dayton’s latest novel STRONGER, FASTER, AND MORE BEAUTIFUL is a science fiction thriller told in six parts and provides a look at the unlimited possibilities of biotech advances and the ethical quandaries they will provoke. Dayton shows us a near and distant future in which we will eradicate disease, extend our lifespans and reshape the human body. The results can be heavenly --- saving the life of your dying child; and horrific --- the ability to modify convicts into robot slaves. Deeply thoughtful, poignant, horrifying and action-packed, this novel is groundbreaking in both form and substance. STRONGER, FASTER, AND MORE BEAUTIFUL examines how far we will go to remake ourselves into the perfect human specimen, and what it means to be human at all. It should come as no surprise that STRONGER, FASTER, AND MORE BEAUTIFUL is one of our Ultimate Reading List titles, and in celebration of the book's release, we talked to Arwen about her new book, genetic modification, research and writing and more!
