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! ūüėģ

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 ‚Äėbeamed up‚Äô ‚ÄĒ fascinating concepts that far surpassed anything I‚Äôd ever thought of while watching Star Trek. While ‚ÄėSurfacing‚Äô is, ultimately, not a matter transmitter story, it explores some of problems this form of transport highlights: what happens to the ‚Äėreal us‚Äô when people dematerialise? What is lost each time we come apart? What remains?
