Despite the desolate image on the cover, this collection is more about picking up the pieces than wallowing in the past. Even when times seem like they should be miserable, the characters muster and carry on as if inconveniences are not an issue.

The speculation here is high-bit, idea-rich--much as the work of Charles Stross or Cory Doctorow (Wireless and With a Little Help):

--9 billion people live in upper-lattitude, reboot cities during a warming era
--Kids play immersive video games that help rebuild the environment, but kids will be kids
--Humans have transcended and animals rule the earth under the guidance of AI in the sky, and they engage in crazy battles against sentient volcanoes.
--The US is divided in 2: Agnostica and Faithland.
--After a tsunami, children create an imaginary city that takes on a life of its own.

If you like your fiction with a lot of imagination, this one's well worth it.

I highly recommend this short story collection. Timothy Leary said, "There are two words which always define a great writer-philosopher: encyclopedic and epic." Paul is both, and more -- I would like to add "euphoric" to the list because there is an underlying optimism to his work that is incredibly refreshing. There are so many brilliant ideas in these stories: an intelligent atmosphere, a universal proseity device, genetically-designed "guardians" of the earth, etc. Paul Di Filippo is a visionary juggernaut!
