Notes from Crew Quarters: Other Worlds
This week, Ethan Brightbill had this question for our editors: If you could live in any fictitious world, fantastic or mundane, where would you choose and why?
E. Flores, Associate Poetry Editor
All My Circuits, a soap opera with robots within the show Futurama. Also, I'd be a robot, because you could just power down for as long as you wanted.
Jackson Keller, Associate Fiction Editor
Persona 4, the best video game ever. I want to be a Japanese high schooler and solve murders in a weird parallel ghost dimension in between studying for exams and hanging out with friends at the food court.
Patricia Killelea Poetry Editor
Definitely the world of The Owls of Ga'Hoole. Also, I would be an owl.
Deziree' Brown, Associate Poetry Editor
NegroTown, created by Key & Peele.
Hayli Cox, Associate Nonfiction Editor
Pandaria (despite the flack it got) from WOW. For every reason.
Mike Berry, Associate Fiction Editor
The Summerlands from Michael Chabon's novel, Summerland. Baseball in other dimensions? When do we leave?
Karl Schroeder, Associate Poetry Editor
Probably the place where Homer ended up when he stepped inside a bookcase to avoid Patty and Selma.
