Three Worlds Collide (0/​8)

“The kind of clas­sic fifties-era first-con­tact story that Jonathan Swift might have writ­ten, if Jonathan Swift had had a back­ground in game the­ory.”
-- (Hugo nom­i­nee) Peter Watts, “In Praise of Baby-Eat­ing

Three Wor­lds Col­lide is a story I wrote to illus­trate some points on nat­u­ral­is­tic metaethics and di­verse other is­sues of ra­tio­nal con­duct. It grew, as such things do, into a small nov­ella. On pub­li­ca­tion, it proved widely pop­u­lar and widely crit­i­cized. Be warned that the story, as it wrote it­self, ended up con­tain­ing some pro­fan­ity and PG-13 con­tent.
