About the Author

"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

The author makes (and likely accurate) points. However, the emperor following this guide may set rhemself up for violent uprising.
