A short story by George Alec Effinger, better known for his {{cyberpunk}} ''Literature/MaridAudran'' series. The story is a long and bleak exploration of illness and death, which were facts of life for the author. A [[TropesAreTools very interesting case]] of LifeEmbellished.

The story follows the life of [[AuthorAvatar Sandor Courane]] in, or rather out of, a world run by a [[AIIsACrapshoot malevolent AI]] by the name of TECT. An incredibly unlucky man, Courane is nominated by TECT for jobs he simply cannot do adequately. For his disobedience, the computer exiles him to a prison planet known simply as Planet D, or Home. He lives a simple pastoral life along with a small cadre of fellow prisoners. In a story told through flashbacks, it becomes clear that everyone who enters Planet D quickly succumbs to a debilitating form of memory loss and dies within a year. With Courane determined to cure himself and strike back against TECT, but absolutely powerless, the story that follows serves as a fine instigator of clinical depression.
