Derek Künsken is the author of many works of fiction including the novella 'Tool Use by the Humans of Danzhai County' (ASIMOV'S, JULY/AUGUST 2020), THE QUANTUM MAGICIAN, and THE HOUSE OF STYX.

In this interview Derek chatted with me about artificial intelligence, poverty, and hope in the future. And more besides. It was a great conversation and I enjoyed it immensely.

I will be speaking to Derek again at the end of the month and we plan to talk about Venus, fighting cancer with viruses, and quantum entanglement. So, stay tuned.

In the meantime, you can read THE QUANTUM MAGICIAN, THE QUANTUM GARDEN, and POLLEN FROM A FUTURE HARVEST. And read 'Tool Use by the Humans of Danzhai County', too, as it should win prizes.


If you enjoy these conversations, and if you can manage it, please consider getting me virtual coffee. It will really help.



Thanks for listening.

See you next time.
