"My recommended starting point for her work is Communion, published in the June 2014 issue of Clarkesworld. Mohanraj packs a lot into this story  ideas of beauty, moral questions surrounding genetic modification, differing traditions surrounding death, and what it means to be a family and a community – among others. My only complaint regarding the story is not exactly a complaint, but more a wish that the work was longer and had more time to explore each individual component of the tale...The question of genetic modification in Communion was particularly intriguing to me. A couple  one modified by her parents to have advantages such as beauty and perfect health, and the other not modified by her parents  are faced with the question of how far they will go as they prepare to start a family of their own."
