Story
Tagline
SF author, long-form blogger, technoscience theorist, social scientist
Introduction
I'm interested in science and technology, SF, the publishing industry, social media, and writing etc.
 
I run two SF blogs and discuss SF and publishing/development topics.
 
I also run a blog that focuses on technoscience and the future. (links below)
 
I've written two SF novels and two short SF stories. My novels are action-adventures (of sorts) and high tech but are narratively philosophical with many issues and themes interwoven throughout.
 
I'm particularly interested in scientific research and technology development programmes, scarcity/post-scarcity, pre- and post-apocalyptic settings, space opera, technological singularity, transhumanism, cyborgs, post-humanism, insurrection and revolution, free, change and prevention agency, slavery, reductionism, anti-human corporatism, mediocrity, meritocracy, fierce competition, elitism, profligacy, unequal resource allocation, the politics of language and action, political theory, social anarchy, oligarchy, the rhetoric of democracy, alternative economics, power, extreme conditions, population statistics, the medical industrial complex, the institutions, the establishment, establishmentarianism, disestablishmentarianism, disinstitutionalisationism, change techniques, subjectivity, social psychology, cultural anthropology, class divisions, the underclass, inclusion/exclusion criteria, utopia, dystopia, future speculation, innovative urbanism, community, prosocial and antisocial conduct, moral development, ideology, belief, innovative agriculture, world systems, phase transitions, paradigm shifts, autodidactism,  deconstruction, incisive criticism, and so forth....
