This is just way too overdone for me with too many holes in it.
By far, the worse of the 4 stories in 2054.
Nuff said, move along, nothing to see here.
An interesting little novella based in a deep ocean thorium mine with a human, an AI and a bunch of OctoPods as workers: OctoPods are cyborg octopuses in case you were wondering.
It mostly explores the same theme as Blade Runner, as in, what is it to be me.
I am left thinking that there’s at least a full length novel in this deep underwater world and the onshore world that supports it and squabbles over the rights. There’s certainly a lot of interesting space for a novel or three to explore and fill.
At the time of posting this review this is only available in 2054.
If dystopia is your thing then this is right up your alley. It’s dirty, violent, extremely sexually graphic — and the ending.
Definitely not for children.
Also available in Uprising: 12 Dystopian Futures.
