‘Now the first thing I need to say is… relax! We’re on a secure virtual connection here, so trust me – you won’t get caught…”
I’ll be performing my short, friendly-but-scary SF piece The Gene Auction at Virtual Futures Another Loving Near Future Fiction Salon next Tuesday 12 February.
This from Virtual Futures:
Reproduction is the only constant in human history – from our beginnings as single cell organisms to the sexual practices we see today.
Many of our social behaviours have been built and altered by our attitudes towards reproduction and the methods of passing our genes on to the next generation. Technologies frequently manipulate this most basic of human instincts to produce new ways to sexually interact with one another.
Our authors consider the future of courtship, contraceptives, conception, childbirth, and some of the things in between.
Join us for an evening that incorporates original reading, performance and live art as Virtual Futures continues its mission to reassert the significance of science fiction as a tool for navigating the increasing technologization of society and culture.
Doors are from 6.30pm in Miranda Room at Ace Hotel, 100 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6JQ. Tickets are £6.
