Nik Constantine. Last Transaction. (Fantasy and Science Fiction, Mar/Apr 2015)

fsf150304A first published story by Constantine, who has a tech background, and he sticks with what he knows to get this story right. The narrative is presented in the form a log of computer program actions, observations and communications with the unnamed/unseen protagonist. There are several computer programs throughout, starting up, gathering data, making transactions and the reader (I’ve a suspicion some readers may not like the format) is able to piece together what is happening in what becomes (not an easy thing) a thriller.
