When the Soft Sciences Get Positively Runny

Ira Nayman

REMEMBER: If you don’t like this reality, try another one!

The Alternate Reality News Service (ARNS) sends reporters into other universes and has them write articles about what they find there. Part satire, part surrealism, all fake journalism all the time. When the Soft Sciences Get Positively Runny, the 13th collection of ARNS articles, features all the usual news, reviews and interviews readers have come to expect, as well as two special reports: one on what happens when social structures begin to break down and one on Artificial Intelligence changing the nature of … well, everything.
