Is biopunk one of the new contenders in science fiction romance? I do believe the answer to that question is a resounding "Yes!"
The Biopunk Reader is a new blog devoted exclusively to this amazingly versatile subgenre. Here's a little background about the endeavor:
The Biopunk Reader is dedicated to exploring the often-overlooked science fiction subgenre of biopunk. What would our future (or past) look like seen through orange cat eyes? How differently would it run on bacterial computers? Where could we travel on buses that walk?
For more information, read the blog's Statement of Intent, or check out Wikipedia's short (but sweet) section on the biopunk subgenre.
The Biopunk Reader is the brainchild of author Christine Danse (ISLAND OF ICARUS) and Leah Dearborn, "...a Boston-based journalism student and occasional contributor to Steampunk Magazine."
When Ms. Danse invited me to contribute a post, I jumped at the chance to share my own Encounters of the Biopunk Kind. I made some interesting discoveries along the way, and I'd love to hear your thoughts about biopunk, beanstalks, and magnetron wave satellites.
