Charlie Human - Dance Dance RevolutionCharlie Human has a rather marvellous story up on the World SF Blog, called Dance Dance Revolution.

Essentially this is about crack urben ground assault troops, who control their Killbots by dancing. It messes with your brain, and it makes you laugh:

I break formation to reach for the sky and shimmy. The insurgent dies in a hail of bullets. Disco has saved my life more than once.

Very much worth reading, and a promise for the future from this new writer.
