SF writer Ken MacLeod and his pals at the ESRC Genomics Policy and Research Forum at the University of Edinburgh have just launched "The Human Genre Project:"
The Human Genre Project is a collection of new writing in very short forms -- short stories, flash fictions, reflections, poems -- inspired by genes and genomics.
Starting with just a few pieces at its launch in July 2009, the collection will grow and develop over time. Please check back regularly to see what has been added.
The project was conceived by Ken MacLeod, writer in residence at the Genomics Forum, who also edits the collection, and was inspired by Michael Swanwick's Periodic Table of Science Fiction.
The Human Genre Project is an initiative of the ESRC Genomics Policy and Research Forum, part of the ESRC Genomics Network, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and based at The University of Edinburgh.
