While rereading over all the topics that were listed on the Paper 2 assignment sheet I thought of something from another class I have. It reminded me of a short story by Ryan Harty called “Why The Sun Turns Red When The Sun Goes Down.” He’s not an “sf” writer, not labeled as such anyway, just a short story writer but this one had some sf elements. I thought it was an interesting read anyway… It’s a quick and easy read if anyone was interested or anything.
I was just reminded of it thinking of the “Bodies that Matter” and “Automata” topics from the sheet, and the relationship of humans to robots, the mind to the body (whatever it might be), and how memories and having a personal history affects any being.
Anyways, the pdf version of the story can be found at: http://www.whsfilmfestival.com/Walpole_High_School_Film_Festival/Short_Stories_files/Why%20the%20sky%20turns%20red.pdf
