Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Ketty is from Martinique and lives in Paris. She writes poetry and fiction, and she has edited special issues of Galaxies on the topic of Africa.
“HeLa Is Here” can be called “hard” science fiction to the extent that it is based on a real phenomenon in cancer research: the immortality of cancer cells. They just don’t seem to age. And the “HeLa” cells, in particular have become all too well known in biology labs.
But what if those cells could produce human clones that are, themselves, immortal? How might a reconstituted Henrietta Lacks — memories and all — feel about it? And, given a weird cult of immortality surrounding one’s existence, how might anyone feel about it?
Ketty Steward’s bio sketch can be found here.
Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Ketty. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
