Blood Psychics Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Although Blood Psychics can be read on its own, for me, its enjoyment came with the insight I gleaned about Cel & Anna's heroine, the psychic Anna Ringer. She struck me as a bit amoral in Cel & Anna, but then her whole culture is, by necessity. In Blood Psychics, I came to understand her and empathize. Anna's clairvoyant mother gives narcissism a whole new dimension.
The titular Joan Holland is one of the most sympathetic characters ever. I want to sit in her kitchen, inhale her fresh baked bread, tell her it's going to be all right.
But it's not. Nothing is right in The Reunited States, not the creepy self-driving cars or the drug-addled civil servants or the nasty stuff that passes for food. I've had Warning: Something Else Is Happening, the sequel to Cel & Anna, patiently waiting in my Kindle for a few months.
This short gem has reminded me that it's time to pay another visit to Lindsay Edmunds' eerie, not-so-distant future.
