Technology Review's science fiction anthology


Dès l'automne prochain, le site Technology Review va publier plusieurs nouvelles inédites d'auteurs de science-fiction. Au programme ? Des thématiques comme l'informatique, Internet, les formes d'énergie, la matière ou encore la biomédecine, reprenant les thèmes déjà abordés par le site. 

Le premier auteur annoncé pour participer à ce projet est Cory Doctorow, dont le seul Dans la dèche au Royaume Enchanté est paru en France. 

Le site indique pourquoi ils l'ont choisi de l'approcher pour ce projet : 
But the work that convinced us that we had to approach Doctorow about writing an original story for TR:SF was his 2006 short story, "I, Row-Boat." The title riffs on the name of one of Isaac Asimov's most famous books, a collection of robot stories called I, Robot. In Asimov's tales, robots have three laws hardwired into their brains - to protect humans, to obey humans, and to preserve their own existence whenever possible. The hero of "I, Row-Boat," on the other hand, is a self-aware watercraft that's read Asimov's fiction, and consequently spends a lot of its time engaged in online debates with other artificial intelligences over just how seriously one is supposed to take the three laws. The story, which you can read here, is full of wry humor and thoughtful imagination, which has carried over into the story he has written for us.
