Carlo Morse and Jimmy Ganzer pioneered dream-fabbing, but these days people only want to close their eyes to trashy stuff -- not the mention the kids and their fancy imported tech. It's a good thing Schwartz's Deli is still the same.

They sure know how to make an opening.

The tradition of cyberpunk short stories as metanarrative commentary on sci-fi goes back to the very beginning, with William Gibson's own The Gernsback Continuum. The two masters at work here pull the joke to ridiculous, ludicrous extent. But I'm not spoil(

Another Tor.com short story.

I hate surrealism in writing. I like some kind of sense, doesn't have to be much, but there needs to be something there. I didn't even understand half of the words, so full of jargon was this story. On top of that it's based on Kafka's Metamorphosis, which I also hated. Sigh.

Alas, I did not appreciate a cyberpunk version of Kafka's Metamorphosis. The pathos of the original was replaced mostly with jargon and that distinctly 1980s flavour of cyberpunk, full of jargon, disaffected dudes, and imagery that is hard to parse. Bleh.
