PJ Manney on her science fiction novel (R)Evolution

I just finished reading PJ Manney‘s brand new novel (R)Evolution. And, while I was prepared for a stimulating nanotechnology and brain-enhancement science fictional story, I also got an action-packed, character-rich, twisting and intricate thriller with a very generous sprinkling of classic realpolitik. Add a realistic plot (and issues) which may well become a part of our near future and you will understand why I had so much fun reading (R)Evolution and couldn’t help it but invite Manney for an interview.

During our 80 min conversation with PJ Manney we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: her interesting and diverse background; whether there is any tension between story-telling and futurism; the definition and subject of science fiction; her goals and motivation; the Paul Simon song which inspired (R)Evolution; her admiration for Alexandre Dumas’ novels The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers; why she kills Anders Sandberg at the very beginning of her novel; realpolitik, secret societies and their role in US governance and politics; whether she is optimistic about the future of humanity…

My favorite quote that I will take away from this interview with PJ Manney is:

“Buddhism is a brain technology.”
