"If you have a gut response to a story, you are not responding to something new ..you are really responding to a story you were told when you were six or sevenů"
- Samuel R. Delany

Aeromuse Pillow  
  A pillow that doubles as a music player.  

Cara Gibson was lying on a traditional bed... In contrast, the girl's head rested on a thoroughly modern aeromuse pillow that had doubtless been programmed to play her favorite music depending on how she shifted the weight of her head against it. For all Ingrid knew it was hammering away right now, transmitting the latest goolmech to the girl via direct acoustic transduction.
