Drugs. Who doesn’t like drugs? They can do so many things for your story. Your. Story.
It can be a MacGuffin! A metaphor for religion! For fossil fuels! A statement on our increasingly medicated society! A lampshade hung on the question of how your characters stay awake all the time! A way of giving a certain character an emotionally revelatory experience!
And there’s simply so much precedent for it! From drugs that get you into other worlds, to drugs that only come from your world, to drugs that everybody uses to drugs that everybody accidentally uses. So, for your amusement, we present our ten (utterly subjectively chosen) favorite drug fueled geek adventures.
Runners up include Captain America, Preacher, and Neuromancer.
