Abstract

The following thesis contains a novel in progress and three short stories. The novel is set in the years 400,000 and 2350 and explores themes of post-humanism, interstellar travel, post-apocalyptic survival, and extra-terrestrial encounters. Each short story contains a speculative element that seeks to draw out thematic and character-driven "truths." This collection of fiction was written between February 2013 and April 2015.
