Futuristic Foods and Where to Find Them
I learned over the holiday weekend that my story “Taste the Singularity at the Food Truck Circus” made the Tangent Online recommended reading list. It received two stars out of a possible three. My posting this news is not a tacit endorsement of Dave Truesdale or any of his behaviors. Anyway, I’m proud of this story and its reception. It came out during WorldCon in Kansas City and a lot of people mentioned enjoying it to me, which made me really happy.
Speaking of future food, io9 has an article today called “Eight Futuristic Foods You’ll Be Eating in 30 Years” which, see above, is a subject that holds considerable interest to me. I think the list is kind of disappointing and arbitrary, but I do wish I had done more with bugs in my story. I do there there’s interesting material there. What about you? Would you eat bugs or food made from processed bugs? I think this may be one case where the processed version is preferable to the natural form.
This next bit of news has absolutely nothing to do with food — I have a new story out today on Drabblecast called “Garen and the Hound.” This story is another Garen the Undreaming story — the first appeared in last year’s Swords v. Cthulhu. It’s a short short, an easy read or listen. I’m hoping to write another, longer Garen story later this year.
Finally, a personal note from me to you. I am glad that you survived 2016, and I wish you the best of luck in 2017. I hope to have some interesting things for you to read in the coming days. 2017 is gonna be the year of the blog comeback. I’m calling it now.
