This book pits the imaginative sports of science fiction against our widespread suspicion of the monstrous athletic body. The biopolitical nature of sport demands we see these bodies as our bodies, capable of the greatest physical feats science fiction can imagine, but also our worst fears of injury and death. We aim to be helpful and flexible. VISIT BUYERLAND NET MEDIA BOOKSTORE.
