Let's face it: mankind hasn't earned any trophies for planning ahead. In Living Things by Jackie Gamber, the future isn't looking much better. Microchipped zombies. VR game escapism. Intergalactic bride exchanges. These science fiction and dystopian short stories are a raw and surprising collection about human beings-and not-so-human beings-trying to live and love among the ruins.
Inside you'll find poignant favorite stories, plus new and never-before-published ones. From the alien world of the novella Hologram Bride to the gothic short story The Monster, Jackie Gamber takes you deep into the heart of who we are.
Because often, the worst fate is living with our own mistakes.
