My science fiction novel Weaving into the Glimmer is, as any book is, an attempt to enter into a larger literary discourse. Speaking back to both traditional science fiction (Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Stanislaw Lem) and literary fiction in general, I hope to situate my work within literary tradition that can effectively and interestingly explore scientific themes while still maintaining incisive and revelatory character study. Weaving into the Glimmer takes place on a small spaceship within which an exact copy of Earth has been created. The astronauts—virtual copies of people left on Earth—are travelling toward an unknown alien presence in the Sirius star system. As they near their destination, a stowaway—a killer—makes his presence known, and the characters struggle to maintain their mission and hunt the killer at the same time.
