Very Fun

By Eli James, editor

Jan 12, 2009: Picture the scene in the Matrix where Neo is standing at the edge, on the top of a drab office block. Freeze that scene and plaster the concrete and glass buildings with neon signs and kanji. Fill the streets with a multi ethnic crowd. Cover the skies with polluted smog, wipe America clean with a trio of nuclear bombs and install an oppressive, all powerful technocratic government in place of the robots. You have now, in your mind’s eye, a graphical representation of Street.

A Mean Street, But Worth the Trip

By Ysabetwordsmith, member

Jul 14, 2010: It’s a mean "Street" out there, but fun to watch from a safe distance. This story has a short setup leading to a long, sharp drop into fast-paced action.

The viewpoint character, Gina, is a prostitute who sells not sex but something more intimate. She scans people’s thoughts and emotions with the help of a drug called Spice. Unlike some of the strung-out telepaths on the Street, Gina is good at keeping her head on her shoulders. Unfortunately, that’s not enough.
