Emergency SkinEmergency Skin by N.K. Jemisin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Part of Amazon's Forward collection, an assortment of popular writers focusing on the possibilities of the future. In this story, an explorer has a mission to obtain materials from a climate-ravaged Earth only to discover Earth is not the place he imagined. Full of ideas about the culture we live in and critical examination of what we value, this novella is highly recommended.

The Last ConversationThe Last Conversation by Paul Tremblay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Part of Amazon’s Forward collection, an assortment of popular writers focusing on the possibilities of the future. A man awakens with no sense of who he is or what has happened when he wakes up in a small isolated room. A disembodied voice is his only connection to the outside world. Over a month, he slowly learns what has happened and who the voice belongs to and the result is a terrifying story that haunts long after the final words.
