If you happen to see a copy of INTERZONE 212 (which I guess came out a few weeks ago), you need to pick it up and read the short story “Ack-Ack Macaque” by Gareth Lyn Powell. The commercialisation of a web animation into some diseased Max Headroom as metaphor for the wreckage of a fucked-up relationship. It’s about two things: the people, and the idea. Just the way sf should work.
