Introduction

Parallel worlds, called Mirror Worlds, have been discovered, colonized and then abandoned by Earth over the course of several centuries. Earth has also virtually wiped out the malevolent Dark Triad personality traits via genetic manipulation. When it then finds that it needs Dark Triads to sustain its defense systems, it employs head-hunters to visit the Mirror Worlds and find appropriate candidates to bring back to Earth. Nick is one such head-hunter. It’s a dangerous job, as many of the Mirror Worlds are politically unstable, and most don’t know much, if anything, about Earth and its superior tech. Head-hunters have to blend in, sneak about, identify and make contact with their target, test them for the Dark Triad traits and, if the test confirms the target is suitable, convince (but not coerce) them into leaving their home planet for Earth. Essentially, head-hunters are James-Bond-style people of mystery.

Discussion Questions

1) Why did the author choose this book's epigraph (a quote from Bulgalov's Master and Margarita): "What would your good be doing if there were no evil, and what would the earth look like if shadows disappeared from it? After all, shadows are cast by objects and people. There is the shadow of my sword. But there are also shadows of trees and living creatures. Would you like to denude the earth of all the trees and all the living beings in order to satisfy your fantasy of rejoicing in the naked light?"
2) Which of the novel’s philosophical quandaries — the source of human creativity, the conflict between egalitarian / enlightened society and an individual’s freedom of expression, various dilemmas in bioethics - spoke to you the most?
3) What is your favorite action scene and why?
