Hudson gets Indigenous science fiction work published

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Cherokee Nation citizen Brian Hudson has dubbed himself an Indigenous cyberpunk for his love of science fiction, which led to the publication of his novelette titled “Digital Medicine.” Hudson said he started writing creatively while receiving his post-doctorate in Riverside, California.

My short stories can be found in the following collections:


“Digital Medicine” –Read the entire story (below) for free

is a short story about a young woman teaching her elder how to hack computers. It is also about Cherokee language revitalization and the need to bridge the gap between generations in pursuit of the common good. This story came out of my own appreciation for how elders and younger citizens of my tribal nation were embracing technology to strengthen Cherokee language use. I wanted to imagine what that would be like in the late nineties–when the Internet was still new and shiny.

“Land Run on Sooner City”

 

is the post-apocalyptic tale of one Cherokee struggling in a dystopia where Natives have taken our land back. The story is set in the south oval of the University of Oklahoma campus about a century into the future. I was inspired to write this story by the work of William Sanders, the first and best Cherokee sf writer.
