Literary Review of Canada

Those in Canada might be interested to know that my review of The Dance of Molecules, Ted Sargent's nonfiction book about nanotechnology, appears in the April edition of Literary Review of Canada. My 1,200-word review begins:

In 2000, Bill Joy, the chief scientist for Sun Microsystems, published his now-famous anti-technology manifesto entitled "Why The Future Doesn't Need Us" in Wired magazine. In it, he outlined technologies that he feared might spell the end of our species, major among which was nanotechnology. Although Ted Sargent doesn't mention Joy in his new book The Dance of Molecules, he's clearly responding to Joy's doomsaying, cheerleading all the way.
