Hello everyone,

I want to share with you all an online comics site that has some really great art and stories with somewhat extropian themes. I am talking about the electric sheep webcomics site. It is located at and is really worth a look. By looking in their archive you will find a story called "Chrysalis Colossus" which in sort of an H.P. Lovecraft way tells a tale of travelling through time and space to glimpse the great wonders of the future.

"The Guy I Almost Was" is also a terrific story though much longer. It reminded me of myself in many ways. It tells of a young man growing up who thought the future he would grow up in would be a technological utopia with wild parties like those in the late sixties and early seventies. What he finds is quite different. The story also has some interesting observations about the cyberhacker age.

Please tell me what you all think of the stories. I think they're classics.
