Summary
A creator of virtual memories struggles to distinguish real-life experience from manufactured events. A childless couple conceive two children in an online world, only for their imagined life to be infected by a computer virus. The robotic brother of an adopted Chinese child 'dies', and a family realises how real a son he had become.Alexander Weinstein's debut story collection, Children of the New World, imagines a near future of social-media implants and instant connection, environmental collapse and post-revolution discord. It grapples with our unease in the modern world and how our ever-growing dependence on new technologies has changed the shape of our society. Alexander Weinstein is a visionary new voice for all of us who are fascinated by and terrified of what we might find on the horizon.'To read this collection of 13 short stories is to be stunned, thrilled and terrified in equal measure. That's because US writer Alexander Weinstein isn't seeing into the future in a wacky sci-fi sort of way; he's looking at what's just over the horizon and approaching fast...An exceptional debut.'
