Synopsis

On a distant planet, Rune 66, an experimental biologist called the Chronicler fortuitously makes contact with humankind. All kinds of trouble break out. The Grays' exploratory encounters with Earthlings lean towards the blatantly sexual. Broadcast live on the alien planet's "Anatomy Channel" these assorted bouts of interplanetary perversion become a ratings phenomenon.

In time, senior Grays start to worry that the humanoids' way of living and loving poses a serious threat to the identity of a species that prides itself on intellectual prowess and the denial of carnal ways.

"This is a wildly oscillating, engrossing exploration of future human bodies in a time of alien contact, of extra-ordinary space travel and in a climate of suppressed terror"-Stelarc

Dr Rachel Armstrong lives in London. She lectures and writes about the future. She is the author of Sci/Fi Aesthetics and Space Architecture.
