Here’s the next stop on the blog tour for An Angel Has No Memory, featuring a discussion of our ideas of the future and how they don’t usually come out the way we thought or want.
This is the first piece of commercial video editing I ever did, using Windows Movie Maker to combine recorded audio with still images. It was a piece for the late Openfile.ca, covering a Vancouver-based photographer who did an art photo book of portraits and interviews of professional dominatrixes. I’ve transplanted it to Youtube.
The second stop on the tour for my lesbian cyberpunk erotica story An Angel Has No Memory is up on Alexandra Christian’s Southern Belle from Hell blog, with an excerpt and a discussion of disability erotica.
Just found a great review of my short story “Upgrade” in the Circlet Press anthology Jacked In: Transhumanist Erotica on Amazon.
Peter Tupper’s “Upgrade” is a beautiful, melancholy, elegiac but ultimately uplifting tale of one man’s final memories of physical sensation before transitioning to a new form, leaving behind and transcending the body in order to become a being of pure intellect. But not abandoning human curiosity. “When there is no possibility of loss,” Tupper tells us, “action becomes trivial. Even if we can’t die, We can feel fear, and feel even more ashamed because of that fear. We need to try new things. We need to find something that scares Us.”
