San Francisco Book Review/Sacramento Book Review
“Teens and adults will delight in the short fiction contributed to this title by fifteen of today’s hottest dystopian writers… I enjoyed seeing fifteen different worlds for the price of one book and I loved the fact that this compilation was filled with diversity of race and sexual orientation. I haven’t seen very many anthologies deal with dystopian environments, but I do think that Brave New Love did it well, and the obvious play on Huxley’s Brave New World title is relevant and smart. The volume reads fast and gives the reader much to ponder. Highly recommended.”
Good characterization and decent, plausible actions made for a good read.
Regardless of some of the stories being about homosexual relationships, most of the stories just were not well written and were simply not engaging.
"The Salt Sea and the Sky" by Elizabeth Bear I really enjoyed this story--though I tend to enjoy Bear regardless of anything else.
