    1. ** 4.5 stars **I am very happy to say that this is a gem of a find. I don't know how I have never seen it around before, but this was such a sweet and touching story and I loved Virgil and Kiren.Virgil is a game junkie, he knows that, as well as anyone who might get a look at him when he isn't plugged into the game's interface, which he almost always is. Life isn't very great for a nerdy guy who is incredibly underweight and shy. The game allows you to be anyone you want, look anyway you want, a [...]

    2. Wow. This universe. It's amazing because it also explores real-world implications, but incorporates it quite seamlessly into the overall experience. And (view spoiler)[thank god for the fail-safe. I was sitting there thinking, "Wait, there has to be a fail-safe, right?" even at the first unplug warning. (hide spoiler)]I thinkwow, though, this universe. (view spoiler)[Heart attacks aren't uncommon in(I was about to say how sad that heart attacks wouln't be uncommon for youths in this future, and [...]

    3. This book offers an interesting science fiction take on extreme gaming. No longer forced to sit in their parents’ basement on the old couch with a controller in their hands, gamers have virtual reality pods. Virgil has been heavily involved in a swords and sorcerers type game, where he has formed a friendship/alliance with three other gamers. He is attracted to Kiren, but even in the game he is a bit too shy to make his move, although he suspected Kiren feels the same. Much of the story takes [...]

    4. The blurb for this short story piqued my interest even though I don't play online RPGs like WoW (just offline ones!). This story packed a punch for its short length - an interesting reflection on reality vs online fantasy and what is real and whether reality really is more worthwhile than fantasy. No easy endings, but a hopeful one. Interesting and enjoyable story.

    5. Unrealistic, but heartwarming. Bittersweet, but lovely. I wish there was more. This is the second Steiger's story I've read and I'll come back for more.

    6. Really interesting world building and great charactersbut their reality left me feeling sad. A blip of happy, but still sad.
