    An overwhelming read

    “This anthology in your hands... is inspired by countless generations of offspring who lost the right to forge futures of their own making.”- from the introduction This is a series of 25 short stories of primarily speculative fiction edited by Victor LaValle and John Joseph Adams. Speculative fiction means stories of the “what if’s” in life: things like what if morality dies; what if birth was regulated; what if we put the sun on trial in hopes it will be exiled. The call went out to the creme de la creme of the SciFi and speculative fiction crowd. What came back were some of the best riffs on a world that has regulated itself almost out of business. One of my favorite stories tells about the first child born after IMBALANCE killed all but 1% of the people. One of my least favorites is the last story that bounces off the movie “Groundhog Day” where one woman’s birthday week happens over and over and how she eventually cashes in on it. In between the new “Underground Railroad” runs through a bookstore at “the end of America”, and a story about “the history of barbed wire” that surrounds the “Sovereign Wall” built by the Cherokee to keep the law IN. This is a great read overall, and I give it 4 1/2 stars, and recommend it as a conversation started and a celebration of speculative fiction
