Welcome to Sci-Friday! Don’t let the name fool you; it’s Science Fiction Weekend. At least, it is in this corner of the internet.
To celebrate, I’m giving away a big bundle of e-books, all classic science fiction. To read them, you’ll need either a Kindle or Kindle for PC, which is a free application and one I love. Not to advertise, but it’s super handy and you don’t need a Kindle to use it. You can just read the books off your PC.
What you win:
20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Vernes
1984, by George Orwell
Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley
Dune, by Frank Herbert
The Time Machine, by H. G. Wells
Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury
The War of the Worlds, by H. G Wells
Enough to keep the most industrious reader busy for a week or so. To enter, tell me, in the comments, about a future technology. This technology will change the direction of human society. You can take your inspiration from a real technology or invent one entirely. The catch is, the technology can’t act on vision: it can use any other sense – touch, taste, smell, hearing, or some fictional sense, but not vision.
Is yours the smell-o-vision of the future? Give your answer in 200 words or less for your chance to win!
