"Faz pouco tempo que eu entrei em contato com o steampunk. Eu já tinha visto o termo aparecer em alguns textos e coletâneas por aí, mas nunca tinha me dado o trabalho de pesquisar mais a fundo sobre ele. Na verdade, tudo o que eu sabia era que o steampunk é como um passado futurista cheio de máquinas revolucionárias. O que não é nem um pouco esclarecedor. Num ímpeto, decidi tomar vergonha na cara e procurar mais informações sobre esse subgênero tão comentado – e você pode conhecer um pouco mais sobre ele abaixo."

Sci-fi thriller Tears in Rain takes replicants to a new level

Sci-fi thriller Tears in Rain takes replicants to a new level | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

Author Rosa Montero talks to Ars about her new future-noir thriller.

"Phillip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner film form part of the substrate of my novel," Montero said "I read the book twenty years ago but the story in Tears of Rain is all its own. I explore the issues regarding replicants and artificial intelligence, both of which are luminous concepts.”

Indeed, it’s misguided to think about Tears in Rain as belonging to the previous book and film. It’s probably more accurate to say that Rosa Montero’s novel places a mirror in front of the ideas of Phillip K. Dick and Ridley Scott–it develops new ideas and questions about identity and memory, and it also explores further the ways in which the reps are discriminated against.

Raritania: Of Genre Fiction and Literary Fiction

One of the debates currently roiling the section of the blogosphere devoted to science fiction is the one regarding the relative standing of genre and literary fiction - a now-ancient argument into which Arthur Krystal's essay in the New Yorker back in May, and a follow-up this past month, have breathed new life.

Has Gothic fiction been overrun by the modern horror genre? | Exeposé

Has Gothic fiction been overrun by the modern horror genre? | Exeposé | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

It’s the classic, bone-chilling tale that has thrilled readers for over a century. Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray” combines themes of corruption and decay with descriptions of gore and decadence to evoke the Gothic atmosphere.

But is the Gothic formula of the tale still relevant and applicable to the horror genre today?

The answer is yes.

7 Best-Case Scenarios for the Future of Humanity

7 Best-Case Scenarios for the Future of Humanity | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

Most science fictional and futurist visions of the future tend towards the negative — and for good reason. Our environment is a mess, we have a nasty tendency to misuse technologies, and we're becoming increasingly capable of destroying ourselves. But civilizational demise is by no means guaranteed. Should we find a way to manage the risks and avoid dystopic outcomes, our far future looks astonishingly bright. Here are seven best-case scenarios for the future of humanity.

Before we get started it's worth noting that many of the scenarios listed here are not mutually exclusive. If things go really well, our civilization will continue to evolve and diversify, leading to many different types of futures.

Academic consultants are making the post-apocalyptic world more "realistic."...
After a year and a half of mulling over the idea, Thwacke's Sebastian Alvarado officially set up shop in April. He was pushed by a frustration with games that tend to use science and technology as a kind of unexplained magic to make things work in a fictional world. Take the "genetic memories" that power the time-spanning animus in the Assassin's Creed games.

It's not just human limbs that can be replaced. For the vision impaired there are artificial retinas and plastic polymer replacement lenses under development. And hundreds of thousands of electronic cochlear ear implants have allowed the deaf or severely hearing impaired to hear. Hip and knee joint replacements are almost routine.
