The last FF2 review
Over at Fantasy Book Critic, a great late review by Fabio Fernandes of Lou Anders' Philip K. Dick Award-nominated Fast Forward 2, including this about my contribution:
In The Sun Also Explodes, Chris Nakashima-Brown pays a beautiful homage to Ernest Hemingway, telling the story of an impotent man in a far future of posthuman beings where everybody can be (and have) whatever he/she/it desires, and shows that size (not even performance) matters after all - but to be master of your own desires is the most important thing in the all-too-real end. The scenery and the endless, movable posthuman feasts are a treat to the eyes, to the palate, and to the imagination. Nakashima-Brown does a beautiful job with words in this story.
I share Fernandes' closing sentiment:
Lou Anders has outdone himself as an editor, and all that I have to say is that I´m looking forward to FF 3.
Check it out.
