I recently stumbled upon Helix, an interesting donation-supported science fiction webzine. It claims to be an outlet for professional fiction that's too controversial for ad-supported media. Most of it is short stories, but I was surprised to see it had sci-fi poetry too. One editorial points out that sci-fi used to be exclusively in magazines before it became mainstream. Now sci-fi is conveyed in short fiction, long fiction, video, RPG, LARP, etc, you name it.
It got me thinking: what styles of sci-fi expression haven't I seen? Well, how about code? I would be very interested in reading some fictional code that purported to do novel or surprising things. I feel that I should provide a brief example of what I mean, but I'm not a fiction writer so many apologies in advance...
perl -MLWP::Simple -MMatter::Slurp -e
Maybe this is just a stupid, late-night idea. But then again people do write code poetry!
