    I feel slightly ripped off.

    Very, very short story without an ending. There is more afterword and explanation than there is a story. It sounds like it could be a good novel by John Birmingham, but right now it is just a concept that I paid $2.99 to read. I read everything he puts out but this just seems like a blatant attempt to pull in more money. The only reason it even gets one star is because there is potential in the story to become a novel.
