In You Can Try Again, Olivia Walch paints a portrait of humanity adapting to new technologies. In the future you can back your consciousness up, and if you die, you can upload your backup into a new body. Real memories and emotions are infused into entertainment to amplify the feelings in movies. A whole bunch of philosophical questions come up around these new technologies.
Even at its most imaginary, Olivia’s short story feels grounded in believable technology and very real human reactions to it.
