I recently appeared as a guest on the retrofuture podcast ‘The Fedora Chronicles’. Check out my interview to learn more about retro-futurism, diesel/steam/atompunk and the wonders of classic science fiction with its anachronistic visions of the future 🙂
I’ve finished another science fiction short:) This cyberpunk noir generation ship short story appears in the Best Of ’16 issue of Tevun Krus. The interstellar greatship Melpomene faces a crisis, though some of its citizens–including the all-guiding Sister–see things more as a crossroads. Chief Enforcer Finlo Grady is one of only three remaining First Generation post-homs–humans who willingly take a life-rejuvenating yet very addictive and dangerous substance to prolong their lives. The other post-homs have all died or gone insane over the ship’s three century voyage to seed other planets. Finlo prides himself on being a protector and teacher of what humanity and life on home Earth really mean. But time and isolation have taken their toll on the human heart. As civilization reaches further into the stars, the struggle for meaning in the face of death and absolute power may overcome all.
Be aware that while most of my work is in the PG-13 area, I’d rate this one a light R. Contains extreme language, sexual situations, and violence.
