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.
