Ha! It’s been a hot minute since I read any of Seanan Mcguire’s shorts that weren’t directly connected to one of her larger worlds (October Daye, InCryptid, etc.). So File and Forget was a pretty refreshing read, all things considered. As with many of the short stories I get by Seanan McGuire, File and Forget is available through her Patreon. You can sign up and get access to the entire backlog (which is pretty fantastic, if I may say so) alongside a new short every month.

One could say that File and Forget is a cautionary tale of a sort. Set in a (hopefully) distant future, it portrays the cost of corporate greed and administrative oversight – or the lack thereof. More specifically, this is the story of what happens when you don’t respect your assistants enough.

This was a short and sweet read. Well, maybe sweet isn’t the word I’m looking for. I’m sure that File and Forget hits a little harder these days, given current events. But it is such a good read, even without that added context.
