He follows a trail that leads from cancer research to genetic engineering to secret rogue experiments, as he uncovers motives, means, and characters(…)
James Calder lives in the Mission District of San Francisco. In his three novels in the Bill Damen series, he explores how genetic engineering changes the lives of his characters and how it feels to be a human being in the supposed “posthuman” future.
He’s got a background in History and History of Science, and he’s interested in how science, culture, and religion influence one another.
