So I was just innocently minding my own business, reading through the stories nominated for the Hugo awards this year, when I was accosted, wrestled to the floor, and tickled to death by “A Series of Steaks,” by Vina Jie-Min Prasad.
So there’s this disgraced Cantonese art student, right, who stole a medical printer from The University of Beijing and got ahold of some DNA samples from wagyu cows…you know what, just read it. It’s free on the Clarksworld website, and I can’t do it justice without giving away all the sweetest bits. Like, super sweet. Also, salty and umami. Yum. Steaks.
