This is a Sad Puppy recommendation for Best Related Work, self-published by the author at his website Slate Star Codex.

Alexander discusses what would happen if there were pills that would give you the ability to read minds, shapeshift, teleport, excel at any activity, have super strength, make someone love you, control any machine and see into the future.

This is an excellent discussion, delving into the results that could accrue from any of these abilities. It’s light reading, humorous and ironic, and really hits home on a number of counts. I’m not sure this should be classified as a “related work.” It’s a philosophical discussion, but it presents fictional scenarios as reality and has a plot, which I think qualifies it as fiction. Whatever. Recommended reading.

Three and a half stars.
