The Perfect Man

She doesn’t want a nice guy full of plain-vanilla respect for her. She wants an unreliable, vaguely creepy arsehole with an unholy lust for her body.

Salon prints a short story of speculative fiction by Lauren McLaughlin, “The Perfect Man”

I love short stories, obviously they’re a good thing for the office when a brief 5-15 min break will be easily overlooked. “The Perfect Man” starts from the perspective of Lucy who is over the dating scene and dating websites, so she goes to AI4U and has them create her ideal virtual boyfriend. They deliver Pritchard, and he and Lucy live virtually happily ever after… right? It’s worth a read.

    I’m not sure, maybe pop by her site and ask her. 🙂 I hadn’t heard of it before her story and now looking at your site.
