I contributed a short story Jovian-flu for an anthology SF Written for Post Coronavirus (ポストコロナのSF) which will be published by Hayakawa Shobo in 15th April.
Setting of Jovian-flu is on the floating city on the air of Jupiter in 23rd century. People used dozens of small machines inside of their body; extended muscles, memory supporting, hormone controllers, and ATP pumps for breathing electricity.
Haruna, born in lunar city had moved to there because his pollution study was fault at moon, saw a woman got down at the stop of commuting train. With folding her body and shaking head means that, a small program named GCE-73 which was born in Jupiter cities had expanded to all implants computers of her.
People around her got started to escape, GCE-73 infected via near-computer network, but didn’t move. When the person saw an attack of that computer bug, program had been infected to people standing in a meter range.
Somebody called this infection as Jovian-flu…
Story of Jovian-flu is above. It’s good portion and I want you to read in translation.
