The Slow Sad Suicide of Rohan Wijeratne

A suicidal alcoholic signs up for the ultimate one-way trip: to be frozen and shot into a rare rotating black hole called a Kerr singularity in the name of science. The Slow Sad Suicide touches on death, black holes, religion, and nihilism in a not-too-distant future - a future where Bussard ramjets work, insurance companies deal immortality in the name of policy, scientists throw away ethics, and Rohan Wijeratne, one lone, spoiled citizen of Colombo, just wants to die and be remembered. A Clarkian hard scifi short story at its heart, with just a touch of Palahnuik.
