Something of a prequel to the Eternal Requiem stories, “Progenesis” appears in the October 2016 edition of Analog Science Fiction and Fact.


Analog October 2016

“The inundation changes her; she blooms, more herself each day. She works harder than before, but smiles often and affords more patience to the scientists and technicians aiding her. Alongside her, we all feel less qualified, but more eager to help; her intuitive connections accelerate, pulling us into her tide. Even if the history-making belongs to her, we share her success. Harvard and Oxford PhDs happily file the reports or push the right buttons at the right times.

Is she still Homo sapiens? If so, she won’t be much longer.”

from Progenesis
