In these stories, people are changed in some way not by mechanical means, but by genetic manipulation. And most importantly he has won the prestigious “Fantasy Friday Blog for a Beer” award five times (to date). As their stories hit home, their ideas about science fiction began to gain traction, in part due to the withering attacks on the status quo that appeared in their fanzine-cum-propaganda organ, Cheap Truth.
