“The Portal to Heaven” was another Wind Tunnel Dreams story-prompt. I seem to have gone through a mild addiction to soft-singularity stories. “The Library, After” is entirely posthuman. “The Portal to Heaven” isn’t quite, but it’s getting there.
What happens to heaven and hell after we upload ourselves?
T.N. Tobias of Rise Reviews says: “â€œThe Portal to Heavenâ€ by Shira Lipkin poses the scenario of what happens when humanity can overcome mortality and its consequences on the mythic order of things. Heaven is slowly emptying as synthesized humanity takes control of the reigns of death, even going so far as to resurrect those from the past. Itâ€™s difficult to convey a complete sense of a story in such a short format but Lipkin does it well here.”
