An intriguing, thought-provoking assortment of stories that explore the boundaries between technology, ecology, and humanity's complex, sometimes perplexing relationship with both. Many of these stories will linger in the reader's mind long after the final line is read. Highly recommended!

Some pretty creative stories in this one. I particularly liked the stories by Matthew Hughes, Igor Ljubuncic and Christina Klarenbeek.
Many others were good, but felt incomplete, as if the adventure was only starting where the story ended.
Overall, a good collection.

Hello, reader!

I had the privilege of editing ECOTONES (and contributing a story to it), so for reasons of modesty I'm going to forego boosting it with the five stars it so richly deserves - instead I'll just offer some background on the project, if you're interested.

Yes, I'm in this one, but this review is about everyone else! Here's a quick bit about each of the stories in this anthology:

Here are my quick impressions of the stories in this collection.

Inundated by Jonathan Laidlow
I love this kind of story. Sea monsters and undines threaten a fishing village and the land beyond it. This story is filled with fantastic creatures, yet is grounded in a very recognizable world – our world. As floodwaters encroach a father searches for his daughter and his wife w

This is a very enjoyable, interesting and thought provoking anthology. Each story references ecology -- that of other worlds or of this earth's future. Some are eerie, some fantastical, some all too logical. My favorite is Stochasti-city by Tobias S. Bucknell which very imaginatively shows that there reallly are two sides to every story!

I can't believe I didn't review this last year? I'll blame it on my trip to Africa...

Ecotones is a collection of short stories exploring the edges of...things. From the boundary between just getting by and revolution (very apt in the current political climate!) to tech, biodiversity, and what it means to us when those collide. There's also a very cute story by Ken Liu about how technology can be less than helpful. For an ecological-bent anthology, I was surprised at how much technology played a
