Future Human

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Stories submitted by guests are dissected, chopped up, and improved through an intensive process of live editing and debate.

The next Butcher's Shop will be a special sci-fi themed night re-imagining the human body through literature and science, and exploring the utopian possibilities of technological enhancement.

Guests include: Cory Doctorow (Boing Boing blog hero and author of Little Brother), Gwyneth Jones (author of the Arthur C.Clarke Award winning Bold As Love), Ian Watson (co-author of the screenplay for A.I., and a former Stanley Kubrick collaborator) and Matthew de Abaitua (author of The Red Men).

Want to take part? You can submit stories of 350 words or less to [email protected] by 3 September.

All stories should address the theme of "transhumanism" - the theory and practise of using technology to enhance the human mind and body.
