A young woman wonders if the strange “behavior” of her new high-tech jacket is due to her roommate’s tampering or to an ever-escalating malfunction.

Genre: Mystery, Science Fiction


I’m old enough to remember a time when nanotech was not embedded in every piece of clothing we own, which is a weird thing to say because that was only about fifteen years ago. I took my little niece shopping the other day for a fun back-to-school outfit, and she was perplexed by my constant grumbling about how none of it was tech-free.
