A second story about connecting with the past, following close on Derek Kunsken’s Ghost Colors in the Feb 2015 Asimovs.
Tori uses a drug to help her look back on the past. She’s in a new relationship with Kay, a pre-op ‘slate’ (F to slate), but her ex-girlfriend Meredith is very much still on the scene, and Tori has to get her head around the past, come to terms with it, before moving on.
Not much by way of a speculative element, so whilst a nice enough character study, and using non-mainstream sexuality/gender, it’s missing that little bit extra I look to SF to deliver.
