Another Hugo short story nominee under my reading belt: "Totaled" by Kary English. I can honestly say I've never read a story from the point-of-view of a brain in a jar. Now I want to read more of them. The story was well-written. engaging, interesting. It didn't press the often-overused "melancholy" button too much, which is my usual complaint against short stories. I liked it.
This post's theme word is osculable, "kissable" (also consider using osculatrix, oscularity (a kiss), osculary (anything that should be kissed). The brain in a jar was enticing but inosculable.
