Dragons of the Night: Postscripts 36/37

postscripts3637Don’t know how I missed this, but The Dragons of the Night, volume 36/37 of PS Publishing’s Postscripts series, is out! In gorgeous hardback (as always!) and LOOK! My name is there on the cover! 😼

This volume contains my story, ‘Surfacing’ — perhaps one of the saddest I’ve written (IMHO). By way of introducing this piece, I wrote this little blurb:

The idea for this story sparked while I was listening to Sean Williams give an hour-long talk about matter transmitters, in which he discussed some of the moral and philosophical implications of being ‘beamed up’ — fascinating concepts that far surpassed anything I’d ever thought of while watching Star Trek. While ‘Surfacing’ is, ultimately, not a matter transmitter story, it explores some of problems this form of transport highlights: what happens to the ‘real us’ when people dematerialise? What is lost each time we come apart? What remains?
