“Happy books, these are, with happy names, Eugene Thacker’s IN THE DUST OF THIS PLANET, a title so snappy that it immediately got appropriated and stuck on a clothing line.
Extinction Aesthetic.

So there’s the latest news from philosophy, the saviors of the human condition: nothing actually matters and building a future is pointless because Matthew McConaughey says time is a flat circle, the middle of the three-ring circus that will soon be subsumed in the dust of this planet. Posterity is silent.“

“Probably the best sf short story ever written is Samuel R. Delany’s “Aye, And Gomorrah…” Cheery title, yes. I don’t think it’s hard to find. It’s about null-gendered astronauts and the way they live, including feeding off a fetishist fan base.“
