    Short, interesting, unusual

    "Memory Stick" is a short story with an interesting perspective on intelligence and potential and the practice of basing employment decisions on such measurements. A young couple of high intelligence but low potential seek to improve their chances of obtaining a decent job. I liked this short story. It is decently written which is a nice treat for these digital shorts.

    Memorable

    Great short with great characters and a good plot. You see the evolution of Tricia from the beginning to a relationship to the conclusion. It is quite the journey.

    It is a good short read

    While the picture is silly the story is not. A good idea fleshed out in a short story. The writer does a good job and is worth the time to read.
