Are We Human, Or Are We Systems?

Or both.

One of the lovely things about science fiction is that you can be wildly entertained yet have your paradigm blown wide open. An artist’s goal should be to help people change how they see the world so that the familiar is weird and the weird is familiar. In that change, the audience revises how he or she can act in the world, what is possible expands.

That’s magic.

Check out Nathan Hillstrom‘s “White Dust.”

And if you want something wonderful to hold in your hands, he has a story coming out on with Interzone this month: “Like You, I am a System.”

You’re welcome.
