Our fourth piece of audio fiction for February is “Infinities” written by Vandana Singh and read by Kate Baker.
Originally published in Woman Who Thought She Was a Planet and Other Stories by Vandana Singh, 2009.
Vandana Singh is a writer of speculative fiction and a professor of physics at a small and lively public university, Framingham State University, near Boston. Her critically acclaimed short stories have been reprinted in numerous best-of-year anthologies, and her most recent collection, Ambiguity Machines and Other Stories (Small Beer Press and Zubaan, 2018) was a finalist for the Philip K. Dick award. Vandana’s academic background is in particle physics, but for a decade she has been working on a transdisciplinary, justice-centered re-conceptualization of the climate crisis, at the intersection of science, economics, sociology, philosophy, history, and futures studies.
