This is the most 80s short story I have ever read: http://www.lewisshiner.com/liberation/stoked.html
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

I love short stories like that. They say so much with so little.

Has anyone read the novella Arkfall by Carolyn Ives Gilman?

Huge underwater society of human space colonists, a horrible accident causes a lone ship to float off directionless in an alien ocean. It's got some amazing world building. It was apparently nominated for a Nebula.

I can't find the full thing anywhere online, but there's a longer than usual preview on Google books.

I really do recommend reading it.
