R.U. Sirius Heads New Transhumanist Zine

Sirius resurfaces as editor of H+ Magazine, a web zine about transhumanism. Explains Wikipedia, transhumanism is a “movement supporting the use of science and technology to enhance human mental and physical abilities and aptitudes, and overcome what it regards as undesirable and unnecessary aspects of the human condition, such as disability, suffering, disease, aging, and involuntary death”. Shades of R.A. Wilson!

The first issue has loads of interesting content including an interview with hyperclocked science fiction writer Charles Stross. Go check it out!

    Read it a couple of days ago. It’s pretty nice – like a more sober version of Mondo 2000 (because the world has finally caught up with Mondo). I used to work with a somewhat prominent transhumanist during my PhD – it made for interesting lunch discussions.

    The first issue was absolutely amazing, and if the quality remains this good I have a feeling the zine will be quite successful
