Humor Science Fiction gross out dystopian consumption dystopia late-stage capitalism cyberpunks

One of, if not the weirdest story I've ever written. The idea came to fruition when I was driving around with my friend Matt. What had originally been written as a comic script back when I was still under the impression that that was a thing I'd be doing, it got trunked for years,then reworked as a short story. It found a home in the final issue of the forever beloved Broadswords and Blasters. Minor content warning for bodily excretions.

As long as you've got the money, you can pay to have a digital duplicate of your consciousness cavort in a simulated afterlife on a private server forever. Unless you're Lehann Margrove, who got separated from his husband and duped into a "Paradise" he never wanted.

Science Fiction dystopia Aikido

This is a near future story, but since I wrote it back in the 1990s, it turns out to be set in the present day. I was going to change the dates for this reprint version, but when I re-read it I realized I had assumed a stock market crash in 2008. Given what actually happened in 2008, I'm a little scared to pick a new date for economic collapse. I'd rather not be right again.
