Futures in the Memories Market by Nina Kiriki Hoffman

This was a touching and almost sad story told by a body guard of a future "movie star."

Instead of acting in front of a camera Geeta is sent to all kinds of exotic locations and has interesting adventures and experiences. When the day is done her memories are extracted to be sold to the public. Not only does the public see what she saw but they also experience her emotions and five senses.

The cost to Geeta is large; the extractions erase her own memories; the public can have the experience but she cannot; leaving her nearly child-like, to experience everything for the first time.



It was an interesting concept and one that I could see expanded to novel length with a corporate greed element to it.
