This year I decided that one of my new goals in life was to bring new science fiction authors to your attention. There’s just an incredible amount of story-telling talent out there. I’m going to try to join with other authors a few times a year to bring you thrilling, provocative, adventures that you’ll just love settling in to read.
Sci-fi has been an important part of my life since I was twelve and discovered the Pincourt, Quebec public library. Sure, it was great to have access at such a young age to books on chemical engineering (do you have any idea how easy-and dangerous-it is to make TNT?) and physics (“Relativity for the Million” is an old out-of-print favorite-let me know if you can find a copy).
But sci-fi was what really excited my imagination.
From the Tom Swift series to Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov, sci-fi showed me the wonder of the larger universe and taught me to dream of what might be. It’s why I became a computer programmer and later, a scientist. Understanding how things work and dreaming up new technologies has been the core of my adult life.
I hope to carry that same kind of inspiration through to my novels, whether it be in cosmology, sub-atomic physics, synthetic biology, or economics, I want my readers to see beyond our everyday assumptions and to dream of new and better worlds. It may be hard work to make these dreams come true – the universe is rich and complicated – but it all begins with asking “Why?” and “Why not?”
