Short story – “Piece of Cake” by Patrice Fitzgerald

The Future Chronicles - Special Edition“Piece of Cake” by Patrice Fitzgerald was first published in The A.I. Chronicles in 2015. I read it in the collection The Future Chronicles – Special Edition.

Set in a world where food restrictions are in place and people have a weight range within which they have to stay. There are black market suppliers of cake and other fattening foods, and a speak-easy type of establishment. I have seen the idea before, but this was nicely done and nicely written. Just because the idea has been used before does not mean that it shouldn’t be explored more than once in different ways by different writers.
