I can't tell you what kind of biology it deals with, because that would spoil the surprises of the story. You'll see it two thirds of the way in.I won't spoil it either - you'll just have to read it for yourself. I will say that it brings up some interesting issues in bioethics. If you like Hatchling, you should also check out Hasson's novella "Her Destiny "and the short story "The Dark Side".
Hasson has won two Geffen Awards. His novella "The Perfect Girl" won in 2005 and his short story "All-of-Me(TM)" won the short fiction award in 2003. Hasson blogs about culture and writing at The Storytellers.
