Death of a Salesman 2

(viewed 2006 times)
Bookmark and Share
Instinctively I dislike the idea of not waking up in my own body. Who could be the new me? Would I recognise myself? These questions, and what I caught from overhearing the surgeon informing my family that my insurance would cover the costs of patient transference, has led me to a crisis
of confidence in medical science.

Six weeks, doctors have had me jacked me into this machine and I've been downloading ever since. Nurses keep wheeling bodies to my bedside and
wheeling them out again. Sometimes I think maybe it's difficult to find the right match. After all, Biff did say I was a genius composer. Yet now I am
wondering if any body will do.

This is some good stuff... going to be an ongoing series?

@cyberpunk Reckon it's a one off, although massively re-written from original draft. Loosely based on a Greg Egan story from Luminous (did i ever give that back?) it evolved into radical tribute to Willy Loman, Arthur Miller's self deluded character in Death of a Salesman.

@goode a-ha, then you should activate mobile updates when following the shiny new twitter acccount. Instant Micro-publishing-tastic!

P.s spot the little difference... sure you'll appreciate it :D
