Omni Q & A on Orfeo

“Q&A with Sci-Fi Pioneer Richard Powers, Author of Orfeo,” Omni Reboot, September 15, 2014. “Richard Powers is the author of book titles that are on every sci-fi intellect’s must-read list.” Here, he discusses his latest, Orfeo.

Over his long and illustrious career, Richard Powers has tackled classic sci-fi concepts such as artificial intelligence (Galatea 2.2) and virtual reality (Plowing the Dark), while grounding his stories in world immediately recognizable as our own. His work combines a voracious intelligence with a deeply felt sympathy: as with the best science fiction, he asks what effect our works have on the human beings who’ve built them.
