Book The Thirty-Second

2020 Visions by Jamie Delano

Four interconnected stories, following three generations of one family through their lives in the year 2020.

A very nice story, Clunky in some parts, but nowhere near as much as Delano himself accuses it of in his afterword. The biggest problem it faces is that it was written in the mid-nineties, and the changes it posits – regarding swathes of America being under the control of a Muslim government and near-total sterility of the male population – seem considerably less plausible now that it is set eleven year in the future, not twenty-five… Still, an enjoyable story, and as good a version of the near future as I’ve seen in a while.

Right, back to real books, I think…
