Bring in the Clones

If you could clone yourself – or clone a loved one – would you do it? This fascinating novel takes a look into the future and what could happen if cloning is an option.

The questions the book asks are compelling and the scenario is very possible. I’m You or, The Clone and I provides a breathtaking look into what our world may become.

Twenty years in the future, Dr. Harry Saul agrees to be cloned. But the experiment takes on a life of its own, and Harry soon finds that it totally re-shapes his life and his character. The fertilized test-tube egg is implanted into Pam Rubin, a lesbian psychiatrist. But in the embryo stage, the parents learn their cloned child will be vulnerable to schizophrenia.

Harassed by the government for their daring attempt at cloning, the two doctors take refuge in the Army. Harry becomes an Army flight surgeon, a perilous and varied career, serving in the thick of a near war with China, a typhoid epidemic, and is marooned on an Alaskan glacier, loving every minute.

Despite their problems, Pam and Harry forge a loving relationship. But their cloned son, Phil, does become schizophrenic. In a desperate effort to cure his son, Harry volunteers himself as a donor in a mind-transfer experiment. This scary look into the future will keep you enthralled until the very last page.
