“Not A Manifesto”

At Antipope, Charles Stross shares why he’s moving from writing science fiction to urban fantasy: “Over the past few years I’ve found myself reading less and less far-future SF and more and more urban fantasy. If you view it through the lens of the future we’re living in rather than the future we expected in times gone by, that’s not so surprising. Starships and galactic empires and aliens are receding into the same misty haze of unreality as dragons and demons: instead we’re living in a world with chickens with tails and scales and teeth, magic mirrors with answers to every question (many of them misleading or malicious), dominated by abhuman hive minds.”
