Yeah, it’s political SF, since the current administration is privatizing almost everything here, and yeah, it’s set in Seoul. Lots of young male and female twiggi — that’s a Korean word that often has a connotation rather like what people tend to mean when they talk about “miscegenation” — who have Vietnamese, Chinese, Filipino, and other heritage, and whose safest and most gainful employment opportunities are in meta-organized crime. Lots of jabs at the current administration, but also some wider social critique.
We’ll see where it goes. I’m kind of trying for 4000 words — would like to submit to Clarkesworld — but you never know, I have fragments from an abandoned novel back in the old days that would work well with this — privatized cops, quasi-reunified post-DPRK-collapse Korea, and all — so it may end up being a bigger project. Though one that shall have to wait its turn: I have other stuff to do this summer, and other projects waiting impatiently in the wings.
