An Interview with Newton, My Personal AI

April 14, 2013

The Emoticon Generation blog tour continues! This time, with an interview by My Bookish Ways. Unfortunately, I wasn’t at home during the interview, and so my personal AI (artificial intelligence problem) answered the questions for me. The AI’s name is Newton, and he doesn’t like me very much. Here’s a little taste:

Guy, will you tell us a bit about yourself and your background? Have you always wanted to be a writer?
I’m sorry, Guy isn’t here right now. My name is Newton. I am the AI Guy created in order to help him deal with anything that might come up while he’s away. I answer his phone when he’s in the bathroom, I do interviews when he’s not home, and I drive while he texts.

Interviewed by Little Red Reviewer

April 3, 2013

The Little Red Reviewer’s interview of me now appears on her blog, launching The Emoticon Generation book tour.


From her intro:

Guy Hasson writes near-future science fiction, intimate stories suggesting technologies that fifty years away, or twenty years away, or maybe twenty minutes away.  His stories are all  different, but what they share in common is characters the reader instantly cares about, and a story that pulls you right in.  THE EMOTICON GENERATION  deals with a wide range of technological questions, but most importantly (at least for me), the idea that just because we can create a technology that does something, that doesn’t mean we should use it, that we should play God with it.

Check out the interview.

And, oh, buy The Emoticon Generation.

New Review for ‘The Emoticon Generation’

February 23, 2013

The Little Red Reviewer has just posted a review of my latest book, The Emoticon Generation.

Here are a few a few quotes:

His [last] collection Secret Thoughts was about how people deal with naturally ocurring telepathy, and his newest collection, The Emoticon Generation, is about the intersection of people and technology. I should have expected it would be weirder and more dangerous than the intersection of people and telepathy!


What makes this new collection so compelling is that with today’s technology we’re only a few years away from many of these stories becoming non-fiction.


These are character driven stories, and it’s  nice to see characters who demand to know what’s happening and take steps to find out, instead of passively allowing things to happen to them.  The truth might set us free, but sometimes it shatters us first.
