About
“Scientist, author, educator: Dr. Robert E. Hampson, researches mammalian memory, teaches graduate and medical students, and writes science articles to inform the public. He is part of a team working to develop the first prosthetic for human memory using the brain’s native neural codes.”
New for 2020:
The story of an unusual hobby, a forgotten museum, and a hopeful dream for the future.  “In The Dust” in Laurel K. Hamilton and William McCaskey’s Fantastic Hope, coming April 2020.


Later this spring, “Respawn” in Semper Paratus, the sequel to We Dare, edited by Jamie Ibson and Chris Kennedy.

In December, my shared world The Founder Effect, a future history of stories about the legends and myths surrounding the founding of Earth’s first interstellar colony.  Edited with my co-author on Do No Harm, Sandra L. Medlock.  Foreword by Larry Correia.  Stories by D.J. Butler, Monalisa Foster, Sarah Hoyt, Dan Hoyt, Les Johnson, Chris Kennedy, Jody Lynn Nye, Vivienne Raper, Brent Roeder, Cathe Smith, Christopher L. Smith,  Brad Torgersen, Mark Wandrey, David Weber, Philip Wohlrab – plus a bonus story by Weber&Wandrey.  This was fun.

Later in the year: And Break It Not, the first sequel to Do No Harm; The Human Side, a novel based on “Angel” in We Dare; The Moon and the Desert, a retelling of the story of the first fully “bionic” human.


Dr. Hampson writes about science, puts the science in Science Fiction, and advises SF/F writers, game developers and TV writers on neuroscience via the Science and Entertainment Exchange (a service of the National Academy of Science) and is a member of the Sigma Forum.
