[Novel] Pump Six and Other Stories (Paolo Bacigalupi)

Pump Six and Other StoriesAll of the stories in this collection blend just the right amounts of fantasy and hard science fiction to paint both plausible and mind-bogglingly fascinating worlds of the future. I wasn’t particularly impressed by Bacigalupi’s Windup Girl, but this collection might as well edge out the best of Asimov’s and Clarke’s compilations.

If you enjoy anime like Texhnolyze make sure to give this compilation a look.

Positive: Negative:
Fascinating, exotic future settings Present tense narration makes some of the stories a bit awkward to read
Interesting, profound characters
Interesting, clever stories
Not a single word wasted in fast paced dense plots
Thought provoking on future of technology. and how will it affect our race in the long run
