I’m happy to announce that I will be editing Humanity 2.0, to be published by Arc Manor/Phoenix Pick in 2016.
This anthology will collect stories that examine how achieving interstellar flight changes humanity itself. Will we choose to upload our minds into a singularity? Enhance ourselves with alien DNA? Will our bodies remain the same, but our culture and societal norms change considerably to accommodate for effects of time dilation, or become subsumed by the more advanced alien societies? What will it mean to be human in such a future? I’d like to feature stories with engaging plot and characters, but where mankind itself is, in a way, a character.
The anthology will feature a 50/50 split between reprints solicited from some very exciting headliners, and original fiction from invited authors.
The cover design is by the very talented Holly Heisey. We’ll add in headliner names once the table of contents is finalized.
