Cellular Civilization

Where do new ideas and new technologies come from?

Stefiz al-Arabid, a computer science student, receives a strange phone call from a cyber-stalker. Stefiz tells him to leave her alone, but two days later he finds her on campus and invites her to join a secret technology development project, turning her life upside-down. Within days her year-long romantic relationship with Charlie Parker is on the rocks and then Charlie dies in a horrible car crash. Or is he dead? Can Stefi be sure of anything or is she just a pawn, helplessly playing a role in an alien invasion of Earth?
