Great review of Fast Forward 2 in Futurismic
Toby Buckell and I contributed a story, and this reviewer loved it
The review talks about all the pieces in the anthology, and reinforces the widely held impression that this has been a very good year for science fiction short stories. When it comes to the story "Mitigation" written by Tobias Buckell and myself, Futurismic has this to say:
“Mitigation” by the potent double-act of Karl Schroeder and former Futurismic staffer Tobias Buckell takes the best of both writers. Buckell’s instinct for fast-moving action drives the plot, while Schroeder’s concern with (and deep knowledge of) the impending ecological crisis provides the set and setting for a classic double-bluff. It’s a good balance; the bleakness of the impending future is mitigated by the snappy pace, so you take on board the underlying message without being drowned in it.
There's a lot more in this rich and detailed review, so head on over to Futurismic and check it out.
