Exclusive Interview: Last Tango In Cyberspace Author Steven Kotler

In his new cyberpunk thriller, Last Tango In Cyberspace (hardcover, Kindle), writer Steven Kotler shows us a world where empathy is used as a tool for business. In the following email interview, Kotler — who, full disclosure, used to write for the magazine Bikini, where I was an editor (though not his) — discusses what inspired this story, the fellow writers who influenced it, and why he thinks it would make a really good video game.
