Abstract

Fated Extraction is a collection of three short stories. This collection acts as a case study in examining the way that a writer’s work is influenced by things both beyond them and within them. These pieces explore patterns and manifestations of externalization and detachment; the consequences of relationship and communication degradation in the modern world; and themes of shame, guilt, and isolation. Each touches on these issues in a different way, though each piece maintains a common thread when they are examined collectively.
