What other things do people like to write about here? I know lovely Ben here likes himself some weird fiction (I’m still not entirely sure what that is.).
I have a complicated relationship with Literary and Science Fiction. I always start out writing something with the intention of producing science fiction, but that it ends up being chalked as Literary, Magical Realism, or some genre that’s yet to be defined. The technology in my work used to be 100-1,000 years in advance of what we have now, though now the technology I do is what I’ve personally developed.
Example of some early concepts: A Roguelike AI character that eventually 3D prints itself into our own reality with a meat space avatar, and evolves from a flat personality to a tragic character as the plot evolves.
Or the Decentralized Super-Sentient Meta-Human, basically if someone’s brain is scanned and backed up, what happens someone have multiple copies of their own scanned brained in their head, that evolved differently do to differing life experiences, and how that create a hyper-sanity that makes their personality extremely unstable. They can turn the planet into a landfill if left unchecked.
But this days, technology doesn’t have quite the same magic it used to, after I got into an artificial intelligence development. So I write stuff that’s a lot more contemporary, and more memoir like.
