While the Proto Science Fiction Library's chief concern is keeping the origins of science fiction and the further exploration of proto science fiction alive and well, we are not so naive as to think that the only way to engage with these themes is through text. We understand that science fiction, at it's very foundation, is about using the human capacity for creative, futurist thinking to envision both the perilous and the divine in the artist's narrative.
When we think about the most forward thinking artistic narrative medium of today, some may think streaming video, others may think software. ProtoSciFi.org thinks that the next great medium, a medium that we are just beginning to touch, is that of Virtual Reality. It is for this reason that we think it particularly appropriate that we use the Proto Science Fiction Library as a subscription engine that can fund the creation of a VR Experience based on Sir Francis Bacon's novel The New Atlantis.
One of the best features of being a subscriber is access to this blog. Not only will subscribers be able to keep up with all the updates to the New Atlantis VR Experience, but subscribers that hold their subscription for a full year will get a downloadable copy of New Atlantis VR at no extra cost. We expect the title to be available on Oculus Rift and Google Daydream upon release.
