"The job of the writer is to kiss no ass, no matter how big and holy and white and tempting and powerful." -- Ken Kesey

The biggest, holiest ass in SF is the galactic empire, sometimes called (for good reasons) its most ridiculous idea ever. Contrary Harry wondered what innovations might make a real galactic empire possible, and so created his Spiral's Realms future history; but is "possible" desirable?

"Dismissing SF as serious literature is a dangerous mistake," Harry writes. "It's the only genre consistently prodding folks to look farther down the road to the future. We need that, if we're to have a future."

A refugee from rampant deforestation, Harry Heyoka has spent his adult life in Hawaii, Europe, and North America. Though mute, he is literate in several languages and holds a BS in BS. He loves raw foods and craft ales, and lives with "his" cat outside Helen Gone, Oregon.

Harry also loves good music of all kinds. Check out his Pandora stations at
