Hellstrom's Hive by Frank Herbert:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Very creepy novel; everything goes along normally for a while, and then you find out that a small group of humans have created their own underground society. They could have been Shakers, but no: they are determined to split off from the rest of us and evolve toward a more efficient model of society. That seemingly innocent farm down the road? Don't you believe it. Select an invention:

Chemical Orders
Use of chemical triggers for behavior and behavior modification.

Nightmask
Night vision mask (similar to a diving mask) with an infrared light source.

Procreative Stump
A woman's torso, kept alive for the purpose of using the womb as an incubator.
