Interesting story

(4 stars)

The story is short, but interesting. Mark Nelson is always a fine reader. Overall, this is a story worth listening to. Enjoy!


(5 stars)

A clever story showing a dystopic western society addicted to a lazy life, a tiered class system and a western world controlled by the huge corporations. Corporations who sustain the people with a living but also the violent entertainment of televised battles when corporations argue for contracts and power! Some clever socialist leanings that could border on propaganda. I loved it...GREAT short story!

Very well read. On its face the story is quite dated. Beneath, however, is a familiar theme. Don't think so highly of yourself that you are totally dismissive of those you feel beneath you. They just may have the key to your future.
