  • Think about linguistics. What does communication mean to us as humans? Some people argue that language is integral to humanity.
  • How about ability? Is the concept of disability dependant on cultural norms? What happens when those norms collapse? How do fear and access play into this?

  • Readers, if you haven’t read it, do try and find a copy! It’s a short story and is collected in a number of places.
