Although I won't start writing until the Fall, I've started researching and taking notes on a new science fiction novel. No draft title yet. The setting will be Earth, perhaps 100-125 years from now, although I may have scenes from Europa, a moon of Jupiter as well as our moon or Mars, which by that time may be be colonized, to some extent. The Earth will be in conflict for a number of reasons. There is an expedition to Europa for the purpose of determining how habitable this moon may be. Allegedly, there is water aplenty there.
The themes should include Transhumanism, loss of humanity, brain-computer interfacing, cognitive, bio and cyber enhancements, and artificial intelligence.
