You Make Pattaya • 2016 • Near Future SF con-men short story by Rich Larson

★★★★

In a near future setting of Pattaya, Thailand, western con man Dorian wants to blackmail a celebrity using a prostitute he knows.

Technology development is not very far stretched, characters are believable, and the story is straightforward, slick, and very entertaining. I recommend reading it twice, the second time from the prostitute’s POV to get all the fun out of it.

Meta: isfdb. Appeared in Interzone 267, Nov 2016. Read in Best SFF 11.
