Description

Questions of identity and humanity galvanise the 12 stories in this provocative and eclectic collection by S. Mickey Lin, an original new voice in speculative fiction. The title story 'Uncanny Valley' reveals a glimpse of a futuristic Singapore where the Minister of Speculative Technology investigates virtual reality while the Ministry of Moral Affairs explains the importance of numbers to its newest employee in 'Moral Clarity in Small Numbers'. In 'Right History', a professor questions the idea of history and in 'Adrift', a naturalized citizen is reminded of the meaning of home. Using a wide range of characters, from the construction worker to the professor to the badminton star, the multi-layered stories explore identity and various aspects of the human psyche. Uncanny Valley will gnaw on the corners of your mind and challenge your ideas on society and what it means to be human.
