An anthology of short stories on the theme of outlaw bodies: how will bodies be controlled in the future?
What kinds of bodies, modifications, choices will be repressed or compulsory? How does transgressing the norms of body-identity make us who we are? Nine authors explore these themes through speculative stories that touch on gender, sexuality, sexual identity, disability, self-image, prosthetics and robotics.

Cressida Cowell. F: I tried to portray a near future society which everything is subdued a bit — that is, the presence of IAs is as normal a thing as the use of iPhones, because these so-called artificial intelligences are mostly glorified errand boys with voices, so nobody gives a damn if they are really aware or not, as long as they do what their masters paid the corporations that created them to do. A similar thing happens with trans- and metagenders in this story.
Many argue that cyberpunk is long-dead, but your story, in my opinion is an example of a current take on the subgenre. How would you classify post cyberpunk today? So, even though I'm writing in a lot of different subgenres now I'm just finishing a space opera novella, and I edited a New Weird anthology in Brazil, which has also a story of mine in it , I was always a punk by heart, and a cyberpunk by gut and gusto.
The Last Sex: feminism and outlaw bodies
Social unrest continues, economic crises abound, and even countries like Brazil, which are far better now than when the Cyberpunk Movement was active, still suffer from a series of maladies problems in healthcare, education, and drug dealing, to name a few which should give us enough reasons to think twice before abandoning cyberpunk scenarios and motifs. What kind of future do your foresee for copyrights over creative works?
Is this an area where science fiction writers can lead the way I'm thinking of writers like Cory Doctorow? What is your take on the future of copyright? F: I fervently hope that copyright as we know it today will be dead sometime in the next two or three decades.
I don't think Cory Doctorow is making any less money that he would make if he had chosen the traditional copyright path. Besides, a very important thing writers should not forget is that writing is just part of the process. Writers are like musicians: first you create, then you go meet your audience, not only to do book signings, but also to talk to them, about literature, about your work, about whatever the writer feels comfortable to talk about. And earn money with it. I believe this process should be honed so the writer can make more money with this post-writing work, in the very least.

K: Thank you for considering these questions Fabio. Your answers are enlightening and show a hope for the future of outlaw bodies — wherever they may reside. I appreciate your time and effort! F: Thank you, Kathryn!
