Short stories by Seth Dickinson.

I’m a graduate of the University of Chicago, a lapsed PhD candidate at NYU (where I studied racial bias in police shoot/don’t shoot decisions), and an instructor at the Alpha Workshop for Young Writers. I worked with Bungie Studios, creators of Marathonand Halo, to write item descriptions and much of the Grimoire fiction companion for Destiny. My favorite contribution to Destiny is the Book of Sorrows in The Taken King. In my dwindling spare time I’m a designer and writer on the Blue Planet (warning: video link) project for FreeSpace Open.

Listing 1 story.

Is it better to have a human civilization devoid of art and culture than to have none at all? Three Earth ambassadors must whether to annihilate a space colony that has traded away human consciousness for a hive mind that feels nothing but the need for survival. In the distant future, three humans in possession of nuclear warheads must decide whether to allow a remarkable human variant species without consciousness to dominate the galaxy or destroy them forever.
