Review: Venus Rising

Venus Rising - Christopher Holliday

Linda was an ordinary woman before she met Torres: middle-aged, overweight, and unremarkable. In a world of emerging biotechnology, she is transformed into a thing of beauty. But when politics threaten Torres' future, what will she do?

I really enjoyed this story. Though it was short, it really threw you into Linda's world and let you feel and experience everything in that moment. As scientific advances in our own lives bring us closer to the ability to alter who we are, this story is also a reminder of what can be gained... And lost. Where is our future heading, and will we someday find ourselves in Linda's shoes?
