You’ll read no spoilers in this review of author Vanya Vetto’s short story i-Augmentation because what this story does is throw the reader into a vivid world of reflection whereby technology becomes the protagonist as well as antagonist.
What has life become? What lies ahead for all of humanity as we become further and further immersed into the unknown world of instantaneous connectivity? Are we losing touch with reality? What is real or true?
The explosion of technology is global, and we are merely pawns in the digital matrix of machinery.
This short story embodies the voice and essence of why I like to read this Australian author’s works. Vanya Vetto is a huge breath of fresh air in a withering world going stale and quite mad by the book, as we click, copy, paste, and post, ad nauseam!
