That other Speed of Dark

The Speed of Dark has other contexts besides our present theme:

If you landed with us when you were expecting Emiliana Torrini, please don't let us slow you down. (If you are Emiliana Torrini, then, gosh, you're awesome, please don't go without saying hello...)  "Easy" from Love in a Time of Science is one of our theme songs…

Elizabeth Moon's extraordinary The Speed of Dark is not only a great novel, but it would be hard to overstate just how important it is, in developing a discussion about just what is human identity.  In light of the manifold new technological tools for enhancing or even erasing attributes that we associate with human identity, this is a book you should read.  The scope is far greater then the specific theme of autism in the near future.

On the other hand, if you were just looking for an Objectivist hookup, we can help there, too.
