A Short Study in Scholarly Revenge
By Sara Codair
Life through the lens of a Petri dish: love sacrificed for knowledge. After twenty years searching for truths too small for the naked eye, suffering in my lab, driven mad by failed experiments and failed relationships, I found the answer.
Hours later, I read Studies in Pathology and discovered a twenty-something post-doc discovered it last June and published it today.
She gets the glory, and I get an empty apartment filled with dust and loneliness. She gets a card congratulating her. I get revenge as yellow bubbles grow inside her brain.
It’s easier to create diseases than to cure them.
