Sterling, Bruce. Sunken Gardens. Omni 6.9 (June 1984): 58 f. Listed as one of BS's Mechanist/Shaper stories by T. Maddox in "The War of the Coin's Two Halves" article cited under Literary Criticism. A character points out that among posthumanity it would be awful for people to lose "their technologies, degenerating into human beings." Maddox stresses the story's "posthuman acceptance of the meaningless and futility of human action and consequent absolute freedom" (in MR47/48 241-42).[[1]] See BS's Schismatrix.
