Agony/Ecstasy Anthology: Sunny Moraine and “Wetwire”


Because these stories were short and in a large collection, I viewed it as an opportunity to experiment and include stories that I felt were non traditional.  Sunny Moraine’s story Wet Wire was unconventional for romance.  Drawing on the influences of perhaps the “Matrix” and Neuromancer, Wet Wire is an erotic tumble down the electronic neurons of space.

I was free-drifting the night Kim neuroburned me. I wasn’t looking for him, floating through seas of data without an angle or an object, so when he fingered me it was a surprise. I didn’t jump–you can’t really jump with no body to do the jumping–but I felt all my awareness jerk, and then I was arcing out toward him, skimming over the surface of him like a gull over a wave. I was glad to see him. And he always knew just how to touch me.

    As a fantasy and sf reader (not to mention an anime viewer) this is an intriguing start – if the analogy can successfully be carried through we ought to be able to follow the sexiness even in this shape. Great offbeat pick.
