The Biopunk Reader


The Biopunk Reader is dedicated to exploring the often-overlooked science fiction subgenre of biopunk. What would our future (or past) look like seen through orange cat eyes? How differently would it run on bacterial computers? Where could we travel on buses that walk?

For more information, read the blog's Statement of Intent, or check out Wikipedia's short (but sweet) section on the biopunk subgenre.

Meet the bloggers:

Christine Danse is an author of science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal romance. She loves the 'punks the best: steampunk, cyberpunk, and--her special favorite--biopunk. Her fascination with all things genetically altered and bioengineered began circa 1996 with the release of the Creatures computer game and the Animorphs book series. She's been in love ever since.

Christine's first novella, Island of Icarus, was released in 2010 by Carina Press. She maintains a steampunk-themed home page, a Muse-friendly Tumblr blog, and a Smashwords site where she occassionally uploads free short ebooks.

Leah Dearborn is a Boston-based journalism student and occasional contributor to Steampunk Magazine. She first became interested in biopunk/tech fiction in high school, after reading Nancy Farmer's House of the Scorpion. Once in a blue moon, she updates her personal blog, Miss Abiotic's Thought Machine, and is currently at work on a novel about the dark side of the 1960s.
