The Booth

The website has been updated at last, and I’ve a few new things to mention. For the sake of neatness, these are going to be done in seperate posts.

Firstly, there is a new short story on the Portfolio section of the website. It’s been nearly a month since I last put a story up here, so I thought this little short one would do. It’s called The Booth and is a sci-fi flash fiction piece.

The idea behind it is the progression of narcotics along with the steady march of technology. At the end of the day, with virtual reality and better means of interaction with computers, who is to say that the line between narcotics and computers won’t become blurred?

You could say that “Better than Life” from Red Dwarf has had some influence, and I would have to agree at least in part that the basic idea is going to be common to a few things. And yes, I have read “Better than life”. But this is something more rooted in the tangible technological advances extrapolated into the future. At any rate, it was a short idea that seemed to work okay.

See what you think.
