So far June is treating me well, but I’m still catching my breath after May’s whirlwind. This month I’m finishing up a six painting commission, brainstorming a new story idea, keeping my teenage daughter happy/busy, and of course, reading.
What I’m Reading Now
The Future, Imperfect is a collection of near future, dystopian short stories by Ruth Nestvold. Environmental changes — slow in some regions, catastrophic in others — have had a major effect on our world, not for the better. While water wars and pandemics have devastated the Mediterrean region, and a major earthquake and the resulting destruction of nuclear power plants and sensitive research facilities have made much of California a wasteland, corporate-sponsored enclaves defend themselves from the have-nots. What can any one individual do to make a difference is such a world? These are the stories both of those who tried and those who failed.
