It is essentially a dystopian novel, following many of the main themes explored by "We" (by Yevgeny Zamyatin, 1921), "Brave New World" (by the great Aldous Huxley, 1932) and "A Modern Utopia" (by H.G....

I came across this story by the late great Arthur C. Clarke. I'm not going to reproduce it here because it's probably copyrighted to his estate or something like that, but if you're interested in reading a very short story about the fictional fate of a certain species, which just might be applicable to our own, I suggest you do so by clicking the...

To write is to become, but has nothing to do with becoming a writer. That is to become something...

Nary a post goes by when I don't feel compelled to share a relevant book. I'd like to propose a collective recommended reading list, and in beginning this list I'll paraphrase the first page of my first recommendation. It's from a book called "The Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb: Many people, when they see an immense...
