Medical technology continues to be truly amazing – allowing for recovery from injuries that only a couple of decades ago would’ve been impossible.
Makes me think of the extremely far-fetched 90s film, “Face/Off” starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Also makes me think of those first couple of Tom Cruise “Mission Impossible” flicks, with the uncanny peel-off facial disguises. Maybe in a couple of more decades, those movies won’t seem quite so far-fetched.
Meanwhile, switching faces – as a form of disguise – is a key element of my short story, EDGE OF HUMAN. But instead of surgery, or rubber masks, a biochemical transformation is the method used, in a one-man race against time where the stakes couldn’t be much higher.
