Jon Bois's tour-de-force multimedia science fiction future-of-football extravaganza “17776” is now complete. 25 brief chapters. Well worth reading/viewing, even for non football fans. But even if you don't read the rest of it, I highly recommend the first chapter.
I'll be nominating this for a Hugo next year, probably in Dramatic Presentation Short Form.
Some further notes:
- If you want to contact the author directly, you can find him on Twitter. (His last name is pronounced like "Boyce," btw, or so I'm told.)
- More of his multimedia speculative fiction available online:
- Some interesting thoughts about Bois, "17776," and fictional games, from Sumana.
- More generally, that whole MetaFilter page has some interesting thoughts and comments from various people.
