Humor Science Fiction gross out dystopian consumption dystopia late-stage capitalism cyberpunks

One of, if not the weirdest story I've ever written. The idea came to fruition when I was driving around with my friend Matt. What had originally been written as a comic script back when I was still under the impression that that was a thing I'd be doing, it got trunked for years,then reworked as a short story. It found a home in the final issue of the forever beloved Broadswords and Blasters. Minor content warning for bodily excretions.

Satire Science Fiction disposable people gluttony consumption class system cannibalism single use culture regeneration disposable culture consumerism disposability

A piece I wrote in response to a personal rejection from another story where the editor told me it was good, but there wasn't enough different and new for him. "I'll do something different," I said and thought up the weirdest phrases I could, until I landed on "edible elevator." I ended up with a bleak and horrific dystopian SF piece about conspicuous consumption in a world where everything and everyone is edible. Originally published in issue 7 of the ever-wonderful Broadswords and Blasters.
