I Never Expected to Be Thanked in an SF Story

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

From noted SF writer Ken Liu's short story Byzantine Empathy in Breaker Magazine, republished in the recently released The Hidden Girl and Other Stories:

Author's Note: I'm indebted to the following paper for the term "algics" and some of the ideas about the potential of VR as a social technology: Lemley, Mark A. and Volokh, Eugene, Law, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality (March 15, 2017).

Nice! Any other SF writers who want to read Mark's and my article, and use whatever ideas you like, can find it right here; for more on algics, see here. And any aspiring law professors should remember the First Law Of Legal Scholarship: Never pass up an opportunity to cowrite with Mark Lemley.

  1. Surprised me too when I was reading Hidden Girl. I had noted this in the book rec thread a week or so back but I assume you missed it. RIP my hat-tip.

  2. Eugene,
    I followed the link re algics. But at the end of that, earlier, post, you wrote, “…So far, so good. But consent in a virtual world has some nuances that we might not expect, as we see in the next section….”

    Was there ever a next section/post? If so, can you include that link (those links??)? In for a penny; in for a pound.

    1. I forget whether I blogged the whole article, but it’s all in the full Penn. L. Rev. piece.
