We Are Narrative
October 14th 2012: This is the blog home of Andy West. In truth I have little time to blog, but given I’m not anticipating much traffic, I’m sure I’ll manage 🙂 .
The main purpose of the site is a root home for my Science Fiction writings, which I can refer all and sundry to with just one link. But if some decent interaction occurs too, so much the better.
The name of the blog stems from my interest in memetics and self-evolving narrative, and the ‘subsuming’ of part of our ‘individual selves’ to such narrative. This is itself a branch of evolutionary science, a passionate hobby of mine. Evolutionary themes underpin many of my Science Fiction Stories.
Update 8th January 2013: For anyone wondering what the ‘climate change’ related posts are all about, I have kept a close eye on the climate debate for many years, as much from interest in the (memetic) social processes associated with this issue as the climate science itself, though my interest in the latter has grown too. Recently, I entered this arena with posts about my story ‘Truth’, featuring on the climate change blogs ‘Watts Up With That’, ‘Bishop Hill’, and ‘Climate Etc.’ The novelette ‘Truth’ portrays the memetic angle in a lurid manner, and is undoubtedly sceptical in viewpoint.
