Paul Di Filippo’s Introduction to the Monstrous Bodies Chapbook

Paul Di Filippo was the guest of honor at Georgia Tech’s Monstrous Bodies Symposium two years ago (where I presented a paper on autonomous technology in the Cold War and I got to hang out with Di Filippo).  One result of the conference was a chapbook featuring original stories by students at Georgia Tech with an introduction supplied by Di Filippo.  The author recently posted the text of his introduction here on theinferior4+1 blog.  It’s worth checking out!

It’s funny how I came across that post, because it began by a link from Farah Mendlesohn’s blog that led me to theinferior4+1 where I snooped around and saw the recent post above on the MBS.

The Internet–a wonderful web of tangential connections.
