- About the Book
Dinar Rahayu invites the reader into alien, experiential settings that explore issues of gender, sexuality and the downfalls of obsession. These stories explore the possibilities of gender role-reversals, for example in a society where men become pregnant and also intertwines the well-known allegory of the Siren, contextualizing it into outer-space to critique a researcher’s narcissism and obsession of reputation.
