Alternate Yous

I’ve got an article up on the HarperVoyager UK blog, entitled Alternate Yous, wherein I discuss our long-standing fascination with fictional clones, as well as our unending obsession with nature vs. nurture. Here’s a breif excerpt: In Noumenon, I explore the concept of clones as a ‘fix.’  Early in the novel, clones are thought to beContinue reading “Alternate Yous”

Bye Bye 2016

Like sand through the hour glass, so are the days of 2016.  But this year, I’d say it doesn’t serve us to simply turn the glass over and start again.  We need new ingredients.  New sands.  New Magics.  More science. Here’s wishing everyone a wondrous 2017.  Keep fighting, keep growing, keep achieving, keep dreaming, and keep reading.  WeContinue reading “Bye Bye 2016”

Places to Give Love and Support
