There Will Be Liberty #1

Defiant, She Advanced: Legends of Future Resistance

Rate this book
From the Imperium-controlled aetherlanes to a tech noir restitution agency in the Free Zone and from a steampunk, 1894 China with clockwork automatons to a post-1984 Orwellian dystopia with mandatory goodpharm, here are ten science fiction stories of defiance and daring.

Split evenly between strong female and male leads, these heroes fight losing battles on principle alone, discover lies hidden deep inside themselves, execute daring rescues and fight for love and liberty in a society where human dignity is cheaper than obsolete swarmbots.

These original, never-before-published works are from veteran authors, including William F. Wu, as well as emerging talents.

Good stories well written

This review is from: Defiant, She Advanced: Legends of Future Resistance (There Will Be Liberty Book 1) (Kindle Edition)

I didn't know that there is a Libertarian science fiction genre. I'm glad that I found it, though many of my old favourites would apparently fit in well. If you enjoy stories of strong, independent, self reliant people you may be a Libertarian. If you are a bit mistrustful of authority and like to have exit options available, then you may be a Libertarian. I could go on but surely you get the idea. If any of those descriptions appeal to you, then you should enjoy this collection. One caveat. I would not like to be a private enterprise investigator who gets paid for solving burglaries. Most are committed by kids (or at least young people) looking to make a quick buck, frequently for drugs (another Libertarian issue). There is usually nothing to go on until the same thieves commit a string of them. Now white collar crime I would like if I got a percentage.

I liked this book overall.

Some of the stories were a little ragged but I will forgive that because I read an advance copy that did not even have author labels on some of the stories.

I am not sure if it says more about me but I did not think that most of the stories had any real political bent to them.
