Readers Thoughts: Brain Plague
- by Joan Slonczewski - definitely OA relevant. A decadent nanotech city with baroque buildings (many are citizens themselves), uplifted simians, immortal "elves", nanotech citizens with disturbing bodies and a plague of intelligent drugs. The artist protagonist is enhanced by having a civilisation of intelligent organisms living in her skull, giving her the assistance of an entire internal city - as well as the problem of dealing with microbial politics and being a god.
