Artwork by Stephen Hickman (he did this for me at Conestoga a couple of years ago.)

Viviana Fuentes was my protag in “Taking a Mile” (which you can read free here), a story where she’s a copy (a fax) of a woman who died unexpectedly, leaving her without the normal recourse of being ‘uploaded’. She’s coming to grips with the fact that in a few days, she’ll senesce, leaving no trace that she ever existed, not even in her original’s memories. And she very much wants to live…

The story’s partially about identity, but also partially about patents. It was originally Published in Writers of the Future 24, back in 2008, although it didn’t hit the shelves for about 9 months…
