Back in 2009, Daniel H. Wilson—author of Robopocalypse—wrote an original short story for Tor.com titled “The Nostalgist,” a tender tale about a world where we augment ourselves artificially through robotic prostheses and genetic manipulation. A finalist in 2009 for Year’s Best Science Fiction, “The Nostalgist” blends speculation on future technology with real human pathos. Naturally we’re a little biased here, but it is an example of exactly the right balance of humanity and technology good science fiction can accomplish. And now you can help turn it into a short film. Check out the details and concept art below.
