What is Science Fiction?
"Science Fiction" means—to us—everything found in the science fiction section of a bookstore, or at a science fiction convention, or amongst the winners of the Hugo awards given by the World Science Fiction Society. This includes the genres of science fiction (or sci-fi), fantasy, slipstream, alternative history, and even stories with lighter speculative elements. We hope you enjoy the broad range that SF has to offer.

The End
This story was first published on Thursday, August 3rd, 2017


I still remember where I was. On a cold winter's day, I was walking through a park in Toronto. While tramping along, I mused on what investigators might find if I was horribly killed (as one does). What would the contents of my wallet say? The dishes in my sink? My search history?

At that thought, the story clicked into place immediately. Could one show plot, character, and theme solely through search engine terms? On a much-warmer day in Tennessee, I opened a new document, took a breath, and decided--yes, one could. It's a story by implication and interpretation, and it was immensely satisfying to write.
