Powell's Books Presents Shäron Moalem & Daniel Kraus in Conversation With Grady Hendrix
In a future much nearer than you think, where scientific experimentation is exploited for commercial profit, unwisely under-supervised cutting-edge technology creates a menace that threatens the very fabric of human existence. Wrath (Union Square) — by Shäron Moalem (Survival of the Sickest) and Daniel Kraus (The Living Dead) — is the story of a lab rat instilled with human genes whose supersized intelligence helps him to engineer his escape into the world outside the lab: a world vastly ill-equipped to deal with the menace he represents. Modified through advances that have boosted his awareness of humankind’s cruelty in the name of science, and endowed with a rat’s natural proclivity to procreate regularly, Sammy has the potential to sire a rodent army capable of viciously overwhelming the human race. Moalem and Kraus will be joined in conversation by Grady Hendrix, author of The Final Girl Support Group.
