One World – J. Buchanan

** Sex = 0, action = 0, Prose = 5

This is called a novella but it is really an essay, since there is no dialog or action. It is about a planet that is an attempted utopia based on coercing everyone to become part of a collective mind. One treatment they use to make that happen is putting them into a machine that makes them dream they have lived a full life on Earth. How THAT would make anyone beleive they should all become one is beyond me, but that was what was written. The fact that a lot of the narration sounds like rap lyrics is the only other thing that stood out in this story.
