Should he donate his genes to benefit mankind, or battle a corporate monster for ownership of them?”Test Signals” was the lead novella in Analog Science Fiction Science Fact, May 2008, the grandaddy of professional SF magazines. Trade Reviews:”Very good.” – SFRevu”My favorite story in the issue… a mystery involving bioengineering and posthuman mutants…. A great story overall.” – SF Gospel”The subject matter, the ethics of genetic exploitation, is a serious one and potentially quite interesting.” – IRoSF”Bartell is a good writer, and the complexity of the idea is helped by the expert way in which he organizes his subject matter. He also shows a real talent for characters and, toward the end of the story, a better than average grasp of human nature.” – The Fix”Interesting… I thought the setup for this story about the ownership of genetic characteristics (even arguable flaws, like the protagonist’s extra arms) very intriguing. ” – Richard R. Horton”Engaging and disturbingly thought-provoking” – AnalogReader reaction:”I really enjoyed it… The story fully engaged me and left me wanting more. So congratulations on a job really well done!”Test Signals” was reprinted as ПРОВЕРОЧНЫЙ СИГНАЛ in the Russian SF magazine ELSI, which means “If”.
