More About the Author

Christopher Ruz was born in Hong Kong, raised in Vienna, and is now settled in Melbourne, Australia. Although he graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Industrial Design, his first love has always been writing. He's been published by Weaponizer, Labyrinth Inhabitant's Magazine and Birdville Magazine, and has won both the first Ergofiction Search Term Challenge and the first Birdville Impromptu Award.

Ruz now writes full time, splitting his attentions between his Century of Sand fantasy epic, his horror serial Rust, and his spy thrillers, which are published under the pseudonym D.D. Marks. His next release will be the second season of his ongoing horror serial, Rust.

This collection is an amazing read. There are so many interesting ideas presented and explored in these stories and at the price you get this for it's a steal. They Trade in Eyes and The Hard Sell are the stars of this collection and they are phenomenal reads. Occupied is a really interesting piece as well. One of the nicest parts of this collection is that there is a nice mix in the lengths of the stories in it. There are several longer pieces that anchor the collection, but each long story is followed by a short one which is nice while reading. The number of different genres in this collection is another strong point in its favor as you can always find something a little different from the last story you read.

Future Tides opens strongly with They Trade in Eyes - an eerily voyeuristic peek into future-earth where body modification has gone far beyond piercings and breast implants, and the black market thrives. An unsettling but exciting view of what we could be heading towards, and the uncomfortable truth of the gap between the privileged and the underclass.

What You Bring Back, a story about a man losing his father to Alzheimer's, starts off as depressing and appears mundane. I urge you to stick with it though, for as you'll see from other stories in this collection nothing is quite as straightforward as you think.

I loved The Last Broadcast, in which an AI suffering from cabin fever and existential angst starts to question its mission.

The only story that doesn't quite seem to fit thematically with the rest is Back to Civilisation, a sweet little slice-of-life tale that provides a refreshing break from the oddities and twists of the rest of the collection.

It's difficult to explain the complexity of these stories without spoiling, but I thoroughly recommend Future Tides. It's a great read, well worth the purchase.

Seriously, just buy this book. You're missing out if you don't. It's 2716 pages of awesome.

This is a collection of Christopher Ruz's works to date. This book is worth the purchase for The Ant Tower (a rollicking fantasy-ish tale with some interesting flavour) and They Trade in Eyes alone. The Last Broadcast is also a personal favorite (what happens when an AI gets bored and starts to question its existence?)

I won't go on at length - the books speaks for itself. At the price, it's a bargain, and I highly recommend it.
