I’ve spent years in the lab planting experimental seeds that I’d hoped would bloom as new technology some day, in a future I’d never see with my own eyes.

And I’d come home at night and think and write and edit stories about what my favorite fantasy technologies might do to you and me, if we were to somehow ever make it that far.

No matter how unlikely or dangerous these ideas have been, or how far ahead I set my sights, they seem to



ever be

right around the corner.
