Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

While unregistered users are able to browse the forum on a basic level, registering an account provides additional forum access not visible to guests as well as the ability to join in discussions and contribute yourself! Registration is free and instantaneous.

I found a very cool image of an unknown Snaiadi beast:

Unknown? That's a masker.

You did WHAT in my abscence?!

Yep. The creature that is likely to evolve into a possible future Snaiadi sapient.

Anyway Russwallac, thanks for the link. I missed Nemo's images.

I had a cool conversation with Memo Kosemen (Nemo Ramjet) yesterday, and he's gearing up to do some very cool things. His (and John Conway's and Darren Naish's) Irregular Books (http://irregularbooks.co/) has been doing well with its first publication (All Yesterdays), so he's pouring more effort into it. Next on the agenda (apparently) is a new version of his All Tomorrows book about the future of human evolution. After that, I'm sure that even if he isn't already planning to publish Snaiad, he could be persuaded. :)

I was on Nemo's new site, clicked on the Links section, and found some very, um, peculiar web pages. Link below, possibly NSFW.

In the end, the best advice I could give you would be to do your project in a way that feels natural to you, rather than trying to imitate some geek with a laptop in Colorado.

What the fuck?

I didn't notice those before.
"and then I fired again. and then I missed. and then I fired. and then I fired, and I missed. I missed both times. and then I fired, and I missed. this went on for several hours. and then I fired. and then I missed. and then I was out of bullets. and then I got sad. I had a popsicle. and then I passed out in the snow. and then I woke up. and then I reloaded. and then I fired. and then I missed. I missed again. I fired. I hit something, but it wasn't what I was going for, so I guess I missed. I passed out again. had another popsicle. I had a dream that I was firing at something. I missed. oh, so she can pick a snowball fight with 'em. I threw up a snowball at 'em. I missed. I packed another snowball into my gun. that's my secret weapon. I missed. yeah, she's really something. I threw a snowball at her. I missed. I passed out. I woke up with a popsicle stick in my mouth. don't piss me off woman. I'll take a swing you, I'll miss though. I guarantee it. then I'll take another swing. and I'll miss. then I'll have myself a popsicle. would you care for a popsicle? just don't bring it into the sauna. I reached into the fridge for another popsicle. I missed. I got the cabbage. I put it back, but I missed. I dropped it on the floor. long story short, missed." -- Nancy Drew The White Wolf of Icicle Creek: Twist of Fate - PART 3 - Game Grumps

"When Ron the Mighty has stood in front of the gate of heaven he begins to denounce it. He cries, 'heaven is for those too scared of nothingness, I will go no further then my mortal flesh will carry. This mirror is the sick bed of heaven Harry, the eternity of pansy lies.' Ronnie will have nothing to do with the mirror, he is only concerned with the flesh and blood of the now. This destroys Harry. Ron leaves him to contemplate his stupid mirror, and the design of the cosmos versus the terminal beauty of being a wizard." -- Wizard People, Dear Reader: Chapter 23

Okay... :|

Just a warning, most of that is probably inappropriate to post here, and by proxy, Nemo's website may be too.

A hard mathematical figure provides a sort of enlightenment to one's understanding of an idea that is never matched by mere guesswork.

It explains a lot about his work, I'll say that.

Most of it's just horror- or spec-related, but there are a few artists that have more... risque work. I guess that's art for you. :P

I guess I should have expected that coming from a guy who calls his apex predators "F***ers".

Nemo's stuff usually isn't too bad (there's a little nudity sometimes, but that's to be expected), but the sites on his links page can be a bit NSFW.

BREAKING NEWS! There is now a sequel to Nemo's first published book, All Yesterdays. It is called All Your Yesterdays, and it consists of the winning pictures from a competition he held on DeviantArt (I myself entered, but did not win). He says his next books will be a book on the speculative biology of cryptids called The Cryptozoologicon and a book adaptation of Snaiad. If all this is true, this would make Nemo Ramjet (or should I say C. M. Koseman, since he uses his real name on his books) the first speculative biologist after Dougal Dixon to write more than one book!
