Read from February 23 to 26, 2012

A very solid book of short stories. I've loved McHugh's work since her first novel, 'China Mountain Zhang' -- no-one does near-future science fiction better from the ground-level, stories of women and men caught in the currents of near-future history and trying to survive and prosper. This book's stories reflect the concerns of the moment -- economic collapse, dirty bombs, environment destruction, prion diseases, medical testing, zombies (a strange and serious story, that one!), with many of the stories featuring migrations and travel, mostly on foot, through the abandoned subdivisions of a near-future America, or through the capitalist bazaars of China.
