The House Beyond Your Sky (12:26 pm)
For some time, Benjamin Rosenbaum has been one of the brightest new sparks in the sf world, creating stories with equal parts mythical resonance, rigorous scientific speculation and empathy with the human condition. He can bring a strange mix of the Talmudic and scientific methods to the philosophical backgrounds of his stories, and his blog is often home for intense philosophical arguments involving such others as Ted Chiang and David Moles.
In this post, I'm urging you to go and check out Ben R's most recent story, online at Strange Horizons: The House Beyond Your Sky. It's an immensely-far-future tale which is vintage Rosenbaum (as described above), and the less I say about it the better. However, Ben does have an illuminating blog post about the story, which includes a prologue which was removed from the final version, but which it wouldn't hurt to read before you dive into the story.
