Imagining Unilateral Sleep in Humans

June 1, 2022 by in On Writing

More exciting news. My short story “The End of Sleep” just went live in the June issue of Luna Station Quarterly.

The story is about a scientist who becomes addicted to a technology that triggers deep, realistic dreams of his dead wife. The imagined technology revolves around the very real concept of unilateral sleep, which allows birds and dolphins to sleep with half of their brain while continuing to fly or swim and come up for air. 

What would happen if humans could do the same? Read the science about how we sometimes can —  then check out my story for a more dramatic take.
