Stephen Leeds, AKA “Legion,” is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills.
As the new story begins, Leeds and his “aspects” are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there’s a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous…
What follows is a visionary thriller about the potential uses of technology, the mysteries of the human personality, and the ancient human need to believe that death is not the end. Legion: Skin Deep is speculative fiction at it most highly developed. It reaffirms Sanderson’s place as one of contemporary fiction’s most intelligent—and unpredictable—voices.
Guysssssss guys guys guys. How have I not featured this book yet?! IT’S ALMOST HEEEERE!!!
I adore this series of novellas. The first one, Legion, introduced us to Stephen Leeds — and his super-talented hallucinations, which help him solve crimes. Yes, it is just as awesome as it sounds — if not more so. I’ve been looking forward to a sequel since before the sequel was actually announced as an Actual Thing That Was Happening, so obviously I’m a little excited for its release. I neeeeed more Stephen Leeds (+ hallucinations) in my life.
