"Trina Goldberg-Oneka is a fifty-year-old trans woman whose life is irreversibly altered in the wake of a gentle-but nonetheless world-changing-invasion by an alien entity called The Seep. Through The Seep, everything is connected. Capitalism falls, hierarchies and barriers are broken down; if something can be imagined, it is possible. Trina and her wife, Deeba, live blissfully under The Seep's utopian influence-until Deeba begins to imagine what it might be like to be reborn as a baby, which will give her the chance at an even better life. Using Seeptech to make this dream a reality, Deeba moves on to a new existence, leaving Trina devastated. Heartbroken and deep into an alcoholic binge, Trina follows a lost boy she encounters, embarking on an unexpected quest. In her attempt to save him from The Seep, she will confront not only one of its most avid devotees, but the terrifying void that Deeba has left behind. A strange new elegy of love and loss, The Seep explores grief, alienation, and the ache of moving on"--… (mais)

This a book of a woman mourning the death of her partner in a utopian society. Its also about identity - who are you when an important part of your life isn't there. Its incredibly well written.

I totally get Trina - she just wants to be left alone. But everyone keeps bothering her with their words of kindness, and platitudes that don't help. I like the way identity is handled - from changing to become MORE yourself, compared to changing to BECOME somebody else. Its an interesting topic, and the author handles it well.

I also liked that the story is exactly the length it needs to be. Highly recommended. ( )

Weird, but in a really good way. It’s nice to see such an interesting utopia story, too, instead of yet another dystopia. Definitely recommend this. ( )

Boring New World

This novella-length book's premise has become rather cliched in science fiction since Brave New World: an alien presence wants humans to be happy, which for the aliens means being part of a larger whole. The main character resists, insisting on free will and the value of suffering. There is some cute New Age whimsy, such as talking animals, but the writing is too often overly simple and awkward. ( )

I came to this story for the weird and stayed for the catharsis, as one follows the trail of self-understanding trod by a woman who has discovered that she might not be cut out for utopia. What lifts this story above the generally throwaway, goof-ball, utopias of the last golden age of the monthly digest magazines (think 1960s-1970s), is that the climax definitely felt chilling, as there is some doubt as to whether our protagonist is going to escape being an extra in a wannabe shaman's personal ceremony of transcendence.
