A bold voice in absurdist short fiction Intelligent clothing superhero dictators contagion carrying computer games cross species reproduction Welcome to the strange and startling world of Adam Marek a menagerie of futuristic technology sinister traditions and scientifically grounded superpowers — a place where the absurd and the mundane are not merely bedfellows but interbreed At the core of Adam Marek’s much anticipated second short story collection is a single unifying theme a parent’s instinct to protect a particularly vulnerable child Whether set amid unnerving visions of the near future or grounded in the domestic here and now these stories demonstrate that sometimes only outright surrealism can do justice to the merciless strangeness of reality that only the fantastically illogical can steel us against what ordinary life threatens Bonus BackLit materials will include an interview and a list of Marek’s recommended books

    So this book is branded as science fiction One thing it definitely isn't is hard SF I'd say ''A Thousand Seams'' and ''An Industrial Evolution'' are soft SF But don't expect anything close to the far sight and imaginative concepts of say Bradbury They deal vaguely with things that could probably be technologically possible within the next decade ''Fewer Things'' and ''Dead Fish'' are nice pieces of ecofiction depicting a bleak future with widespread pollution and could probably fall within the real of SF ''Remember the Bride who got Stung'' and ''Tamagotchi'' are simply bad the latter would only have had an element of novelty if it had been written in '96 ''Earthquakes'' is low fantasy with an unusual POV and ''Burying Chiyoko Sasaki'' is a superb drama but not even remotely connected to speculating about the future Why 4 starts then? While I'd give 2 stars to the choice to market it as SF and the concepts are nothing to write home about the plots are solid and the style of this book is its redeeming element The short story that gives this collection its title is like the telling of a dream but it's one of the best written things I've read recently
