There is no gene for the human spirit


with 4 comments

Being a keen blogger sees me carry a notebook with me a good 90% of the time. Many of those notes rarely see the light of day again but after I spent a few minutes looking through some older notebooks, I thought I’d try writing some of these topics up.

I’d like you to tell which of the following you’d like to see me write-up here? Maybe you’ve got your own list of unwritten topics? Do you want me to try one of your own?

Do female writers get sci-fi better than their male counterparts?

What does having an ‘audience’ mean to you?

How do games approach the issue of ‘ageing’?

Is time-travel the human voice in the sci-fi genre?

Max Payne 3 and Assassin’s Creed Revelations at least let us play an older version of a franchise character. Beyond: Two Souls looks an interesting case study as the player will experience a time period of 15 years in the life of Jodie Holmes.
