I read “Iteration” by Deirdre Gould in the anthology The Future Chronicles – Special Edition. I don’t think it has been published elsewhere, previously.
This will be a very short post because there isn’t much to say. It was an entertaining story, amusing in places, a big idea, but overall it didn’t really work for me. It struck me as well-written, well thought through, but the story did not feel original. It seemed like a wish-fulfilment kind of story. There isn’t much I can learn from this story, I feel, although it deserved to be in the anthology.
