 under fair use review-- a few words on Unlocked: An Oral History of Hadenís Syndrome by John Scalzi
When I reviewed this, I gave it 5/5 stars,Excellent

As one might surmise, those with Haden's Syndrome are locked in. When the loved one of a powerful member of Congress develops Haden's Syndrome, the full weight and power of the US government is brought to bear on treating it. Unfortunately, treating the disease becomes too expensive to treat those who lack wealth and/or political power. This will come as no surprise to advocates of Medicare for all.

When the author tweeted about a 1 star review this story received, I had to read it for myself. The story is compelling and interesting, thoughtful and well imagined. The ďoral historyĒ multi 3rd person narrative viewpoint is an interesting and not often used approach to story telling. The technical and political ramifications are explored without becoming polemic. The story is concise and a quick read. Mr. Scalzi should ask for more money. This story serves as a prequel to Lock In. or stands alone just fine
