Graeme Hill says "Science fiction is about the world we live in or where we might be going".

Futurist and acclaimed Sci-fi author Neal Stephenson joins Graeme Hill to discuss futurist themes ahead of his upcoming appearance at the Auckland Writers’ Festival. See here.

In 2014, Stephenson was hired as Chief Futurist by the Florida-based company Magic Leap.
