Tom Crosshill's "Fragmentation, or Ten Thousand Goodbyes"

Tom Crosshill's fine story is an excellent example of strong contemporary science fiction. This story uses authentic characterization and fluid narrative structure to analyze the intersection of life and technology in a way that challenges the audience to consider the future. The writing is active and clear and the voice is engaging.


At the center of the story is a very real question: If this is what becoming posthuman really means, is the pursuit even worth it?


Perhaps there's just more satisfaction to be had in life by enjoying our present circumstance...
