Hi! I’m Edwin H Rydberg. I write science fiction, where I explore the changing landscape of humanity as influenced by technology. I’m fascinated by the amazing and unexpected ways in which technology and society interact.
I mostly write YA SF because it allows me to explore the extremes of wonder and horror of the changing world through the eyes of people who are new to it (yet somehow still managed to be jaded –> teens, go figure!)I’m also starting a new Alternate Futures podcast where I feature interviews with independent science fiction authors and read new chapters from the SF Campfire Stories I organize.
Pre-pandemic, I used to regularly attend UK SF conventions. Now I’m working on starting some online ones (that are not just Zoom webinars!), so check back regularly to stay up to date. Or better yet, join my e-mail list.
Welcome to Alternate Futures!
Broadly speaking, Alternate Futures encompasses my interest in futurism as expressed both in thought-provoking, action-filled stories as well as factual blog articles. The former includes not only original, stand-alone short stories, but various writings about my own Eternity universe-under-construction.
I update the blog weekly with a new unique short story, or an article revolving around characters, settings or backgrounds from Eternity. All the writing on AlternateFutures.co.uk is freely available, licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. All I ask is that you attribute me as the originator.
If you like what I’m building here, you can sign up to my newsletter below. And please share with anyone you know who might be interested.
