Transhumanism Science Fiction takes the ideas and questions of Transhumanism philosophy and gives it a story. These stories offer ideas about how humanity might transform themselves in the future, be these small physical or cultural or sociological transformations or complete alterations, even to the extent of some sort of singularity (humans becoming some sort of god-like entity through technology). Some stories explore the idea of biological uplift -- man upgrading himself through cybernetic technology.This is a popular science fiction genre because it explores ideas about how technology impacts humanity and vice versa.

Beggars In Spain

by Nancy Kress

5 avg rating

In a world where the slightest edge can mean the difference between success and failure, Leisha Camden is beautiful, extraordinarily intelligent ... and one of an ever-growing number of human beings who have been genetically modified to never require sleep.

Once considered interesting anomalies, now Leisha and the other "Sleepless" are outcasts -- victims of blind hatred, political repression, and shocking mob violence meant to drive them from human society ... and, ultimately, from Earth itself.

But Leisha Camden has chosen to remain behind in a world that envies and fears her "gift" -- a world marked for destruction in a devastating conspiracy of freedom ... and revenge.

Slan

by A. E. van Vogt

From its first publication as a serial in Astounding Science Fiction magazine in 1940, Slan was acclaimed by readers as one of, if not THE, novel of Golden Age science fiction. Telling the story of Jommy Cross, a young slan, and his quest to discover his father's legacy as well as to find others like him, while fleeing from a repressive dictatorship, Slan was both a ground-breaking SF novel, and perhaps the first Young Adult paranormal adventure.

At the opening of the novel, Jommy is just a kid, but, like all slans, can read minds, which helps Jommy survive when slans are hunted and killed by the government. A novel of racial conflict set in a disrupted culture that delivers relentless action, super science, and high adventure.
