A Miracle of Science which is a completed webcomic about a pair of Vorstellen Police officers who deal with outbreaks of SRMD (science related memetic disorder aka mad scientist disease). His new partner is from the Martian hive mind which many consider the biggest outbreak of SRMD ever.

I'll add Time of Eve as a worthy meditation on the boundaries of what is "human" in a transhuman setting.

Funnily enough, I came up with the vacuum cleaners before I ever heard of Planetes, though I then obviously recognised the similarity. But the basic idea comes pretty easily once you learn about the problem to which vacuum cleaners are a solution.

Itís been a long, long time since Iíve posted here or indeed looked at Transhuman Space. However, the recent availability of GURPS supplements and settings on Amazon has allowed me to get back into it. Big time!


To answer the OP question, I think one of the interesting things about TS is that you can compare how things are actually coming along in the real world. I think, even though its not getting everything right, it is remarkable just how much it does! As such, you donít need to collect new reading materials as much as look at what is happening in current media events and project from there.

Alternatively, ask ChatGPT for their insight......if you see what I mean?!
