Sci-Fi Author Roger Williams
In Episode 5: Transhumanism and Existentialism, Richard and Pete spend a bunch of time talking about sci-fi author Roger Williams. Tonight they hit the virtual studio to talk to Roger Williams. If you aren't super-stoked about this news or are previously unaware of Williams' work, here's a mini crash-course for you:
- Roger Williams' novel The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect . You can read it for free online.
- Roger Williams' story arc "Passages In the Void"
- Roger Williams' essay "Hannibal Lecter as Transhumanist Icon"
- A fan blog dedicated to Williams' work: http://www.passagesinthevoid.com/
In Pete's interview in 3AM Magazine, he lists The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect among his top 5 all-time favorite sci-fi books.
(Update: June 5, 2014. The interview went really well, we think. Check out the raw unedited action below.)
