“Science fiction is appealing to me because it asks us what could be. Part of its allure is questioning how we could perceive gender and sexuality given another lens, which makes science fiction intrinsically queer. Interactive fiction, similarly, places the reader/player in a virtual life, a surrogate body, which forces us to question our own sense of self and identity.”
