Spare Parts takes us to a world where such a question is not merely hypothetical. On a very familiar if different future Earth, man has found a way to temporarily implant the human mind into other housings - insects, robots, machinery, and even other bodies - on a computer disk. While this transference brings freedom to the severely ill or paralyzed and spells success in covert military operations, it also gradually reveals a much darker potential. This transference happens to take place in another dimension - something from that side intends to breach our world. Edward C. Jones III shows us the same procedure and experience from five points of view as time and technology progresses. Raising issues from medical ethics to prejudice, from what constitutes identity to freedom versus ownership, each perspective shares the same underlying chilling premise: How willingly we take things at face value, and who knows what tomorrow will bring.
