New short fiction from Bakker and Eric Schwitzgebel.
Found this via r/bakker.
Thought I should link it here.

It's one of the only two pieces of extracurricular media Bakker has linked on TPB.

I thought it was interesting. I'm not sure what it was (I'd have to go back and reread) but I thought there were some interesting, possible, analogies to something to do with the No-God?

EDIT: Also, I realize you were going for prominence but is there another space for this? I wish Bakker had more shorts to put them with but I don't think this belongs in Atrocity Tales, obviously, as that is a specific anthology... Hmm...

Maybe Literature?

I thought about that but it is a Bakker short... it should be someplace more prominent.

If only he had others like it...

Hmm... but do we discuss those here or as threads in Literature? I don't they necessitate their own subforum?

An entertaining. Basically the same thoughts provided in Neuropath but boiled down. Its very clear to me what things Bakker has on his mind as he pursues his Ph.D.

I thought about that but it is a Bakker short... it should be someplace more prominent.

If only he had others like it...

I think he does?:

What Was… And What Will Never Be

The Long Held Breath

Eh, why not make a new Sub? The Three mentioned above, and maybe throw Light, Time, and Gravity ... Call it Bakker Short Stories, link the one's we've got in a sticky post up top. Call it a day.

Maybe not worth the effort, but if you feel like they need a home, go ahead and make one :P
One of the other conditions of possibility.
