Over at Enclave, I have a little post about how I see the amazingly exciting things happening in space exploration right now impacting art and literature in the decades to come.
This is a theme that I’ve been exploring more and more in my writing lately, and one that will be prominent in my next book, which is being written at the moment. I do think that the discoveries being made about the cosmos and our own tiny part of it are one of the major stories of human civilization right now, and this is something writers and artists should take note of. And if you look at the broader currents of postwar literature in the 20th century, I think you can see that many of the major authors have already been taking this subject up.
That’s all I have to say about that at the moment. There will be more down the line to be sure, but for now I just wanted to put that out there.
