On "Sexy, Hot, Sad, Tragic, Accident" by Krishan Coupland (2404 words) ****

Look the words of this title up on the Internet and see what you find. You probably won't find this story, but such is the cruelty of Google's automated search and recover. Why not this story? Why some other site? Unless you're up on all of what goes in to search engine ratings, you probably will never know. Just like you'll never know "Em," the character at the center of this story--though if you had the film that this story discusses, you might get an understanding of what people think of Em, not the real Em but the Em projected on our screens. This story of loss, of trying to recapture what was, is quite the thing to save and hold on to for as long as you can. Read it here at Eclectica.
