Review

(Starred review) Jones has compiled a fascinating collection of 15 stories that explore the connections between the living and the dead. The portrayals of both near and distant futures show a wide variety of focuses, such as using technology to communicate with the dead (as in Warren Ellis’s “Ghostmakers” and Tricia Sullivan’s “The Psychometry of Tuvan Currency”) or grappling with the emotional reverberations of someone’s death or disappearance. The most touching stories bookend the collection: in Felicity Shoulders’ “You’re Welcome,” an empty-nester couple try to piece together their college-aged daughter’s disappearance from her online orders, and in Jeff Noon’s “Mercury Teardrops,” a musician attempts to come to terms with his cyborg girlfriend’s death. Contemporary social issues are also tackled, as in the outstanding “Split Shadow” by S.L. Huang, an essential portrayal of mental health attitudes and treatment. There is an entry for every speculative genre, including space exploration (Gethin A. Lynes’s “Remember the Sky”), Lovecraftian horror (Lynnea Glasser’s “Guardian of the Gate”), and postapocalyptic feminism (Pete Rawlik’s “Retirement Plan”), and each story lives up to or exceeds its genre’s expectations. (May) -- Publishers Weekly

"Haunted Futures coaxes the ghosts of our future selves out into the open where we can see the hot fusion of memory, desire, and technology at play. These stories do harrowing and beauty with equal grace and force. You ll end up with some new favorites by the time you re done reading. --Richard Kadrey, bestselling author of the Sandman Slim Series
 

Product Description

It’s a treacherous region, the future.



You can’t see far, and the footing is uncertain at best. Ghosts and phantoms stalk the haze around you, and their chittering will lead you astray. There are no maps to this territory, but sometimes a brave soul strides out ahead into the haunted shadows. Those who return to the campfire of the now often bear tales of the visions seared into their minds while they were out there, in the mists.



We have scoured the earth for these most daring of travelers – the ones who have ventured out into the future and returned wraith-laden. Fifteen of them agreed to share their stories. Their enthralling accounts will seize you, and you might find it difficult to fight free of them afterwards, but any risks are overshadowed by the dazzling wonders that await. So muster your courage, and dive into the pages. Haunted Futures of all kinds await you, with open arms and suspiciously toothy smiles.
