Our topic today comes from QSFer Rebecca Cohen: “I do like parallel dimensions and alternative universes.”
Oooh, me too. I still remember that Star Trek episode, Mirror Mirror, where everyone had an evil version of themselves in an alternate universe.
Or the Phantom Zone from the Superman comics.
Or the paths of the Silfen in Peter Hamilton’s Commonwealth series.
So how about you? What are some of your favorite “alternate Earth / parallel dimension” stories? And how could we use them to explore LGBT life?
