Dartmouth's Neukom Institute Establishes Awards For Speculative Fiction

Speculative fiction is a genre that takes us into a previously unimagined world - a world that, with a few plausible tweaks, becomes utopian, dystopian, or something else entirely. 

The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth Colllege is announcing the establishment of the Neukom Institute Literary Arts Awards, a global program to honor works of speculative fiction. 

Daniel Rockmore, director of the institute, joins Peter Biello to talk about the awards.

Listen to the interview:

Peter Biello is the host of All Things Considered and Writers on a New England Stage at New Hampshire Public Radio. He has served as a producer/announcer/host of Weekend Edition Saturday at Vermont Public Radio and as a reporter/host of Morning Edition at WHQR in Wilmington, North Carolina.
