Tomorrow is lurking
Fanta-economy is one of the most neglected strands of science fiction, although it belongs to the more noble political fiction. Pizzo and Catani, by collecting these fifteen short stories that are questioning the economy of tomorrow and its implications, create a literary work of great significance: an in-depth reflection on the choices of our present and their consequences. So they give us one of the best fiction anthologies of the past few years. The stories’ quality is very high, a compelling read, and the future that we envisage is actually alarming. As suggested by Valerio Evangelisti in the foreword, science fiction can be a respectable radical literary genre, and these authors confirmed it at every page.
A book that overcomes the genre categories, and tell us about today much more than mainstream fiction. Unmissable.
