Like Water for Quarks: Magic Realism meets S-F

Like Water for Quarks is an anthology which aims to display the synergy between the Magic Realism literary movement and modern science fiction. In his introduction, Elton Elliot explains his goal of bringing the awe and wonder back into the genre. The secret to this, he believes, is to embrace cutting edge physics in a way that allows the author to truly speculate with unbounded imagination. “The boundaries between the real and the unreal are blurring,” he said in a recent conversation. “Who is to say that science won’t allow the future to seem magical?”
