Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: There's a lot of information in this short piece. "Quincentennial coins" tells us this is very far in the future, assuming it's America he's in. Notions like DNA exchange rates imply a very different sort of world.

Con: There's no plot and no story Just a gigantic infodump, and nothing in the setup really leads us to be interested in the infodump. We don't even learn why William erased his memory.
