The Saga of Vassal Squeezeshot
is a fiction that may be coming true.
In prose and some verse, interwoven with original works of art, photography, and video, it envisions a technology that will turn our lives inside out.

All of us—individuals, businesses, governments, etc.—will send them wherever we want, at any time, and see and hear what’s there. And any of us will be able tune in to anyone else’s; they broadcast everywhere.

Prelude, the Saga’s introductory volume, describes the coming of the tiny drones, and, with the rest of the Saga, explores the consequences. Our senses of ourselves, our society, our civilization, and our world will be transformed. Many things will change dramatically, including our privacy, secrecy, intimacy, security, family life, community, government, commerce, jobs, education, entertainment, and our culture as a whole.

Will something like that really happen? Is it inevitable? Desirable? And if it does happen, how will we respond? Can we adapt? Will we gain, lose, or both? A minute of audio about those questions:
