La Mort de Cendrillon and Her Last Will and Testament

  • Stanley Shostak
Part of the Language, Discourse, Society book series (LDS)


Cinderella is dead. Reductio ad moleculus wreaked havoc with her vision and sense of proportion, and the diagnosis of delirium genetica proved true to its unfortunate prognosis. No alternative therapy was attempted, and no spontaneous remission came to pass. She had placed her faith in genetic engineering and was to be disappointed at the end. The interferon for suppressing the virulence had not been found; the antibody for targeting the vector had not been synthesized; the prescription for ameliorating her symptoms was not written. She passed away disappointed but without resentment and recrimination.
