Gu is a science fiction novel in more or less the style of Charles Stross.
Gu - the Protean substance, the last industrial product, the stuff that can be anything, can morph into any shape. Susan Halwaz, the famous maker of digital-experience documentaries, is tracing the human story of the development of Gu. You experience this story through her eyes and the eyes of the people she interviews.

And that’s all he wrote. For now, anyway. I may eventually, when things are slow, revise this and put it on Lulu, but it hasn’t generated much interest so far and I have other projects to move onto. It’s short … Continue reading
You are Callie Arnold again, being interviewed by Halwaz in your home. “You have become something of a celebrity, haven’t you?” she asks. You flush. Clearly there is an emotional charge to this word. “Not really by choice. I’ve been … Continue reading
Professor Allan Scott is dressed in a girl’s school uniform, a blonde wig, and robes, and reading a volume entitled Hogwarts: A History. He puts it down and smiles at us welcomingly through his now rather incongruous white beard. “Yupe,” … Continue reading
