I am currently working on a book about Transhumanism---but I have an
idea for another project. I was wondering if anyone from here would be
interested in putting together a "Transhumanist Reader" which would be a
collection of different essays that would represent a wide variety of
transhumanist concepts. A book like that would be a NYT best seller,
right? Well, ok, no, such a book is not likely to sell very well as
trashumanist memes now are not that popular (which is funny, considering
all the space in bookstores devoted to NEW AGE topics). There would
probably not be a huge profit, especially if a group of authors
contribute, unless suddenly these memes take off--which would be the
point of putting out the book!

If interested, please, email me at or
