It seems like I’ve been waiting forever for this! but finally my short story, The Post-human Condition, was published in Jupiter SF Magazine.
In ‘Ghost in the Machine,’ a novelette published last year through TWB Press. I explored what it might be like when the interface between man and machine begins to blur. It is set in a world where it’s possible to connect to the digital world with a single thought. If viewed on a timeline I would see this as the first step towards human – AI integration.
Using the same timeline, the Post-human Condition explores the final step. It is a world where humans have reached the point where they must upload their consciousness to be able to operate in society. The alternative is to become a discontinued part in super fast world.
You have a choice: digital consummation or exile.
The story is about a ship of exiles heading to a new world. It is their escape from digital consummation – the joining. They hope for nothing more than staring a new life with their humanity intact.
In essence the story is about a bond between two souls who took different paths. It’s about the human capacity to love and hate, and the indestructible power of our nature and creativity.
