Published In: United States, 01 April 2010
These 23 stories take us on a twisted fun ride into some future times and parallel universes where characters as diverse as a one-legged International Actuarial Forensics specialist, a pharmaceutical guinea pig, and a far-sighted fetus engage in their own games of the survival of the fittest. From a new short story by William Gibson in which a teen disassociated from his body haunts his neighborhood through the decades, to Douglas Coupland's balls-out satire of a slightly futuristic Survivor, to Sheila Heti's meditative romp about beleaguered physicists and Oracle of Delphi-like Blackberrys, "Darwin's Bastards" is a fast-moving, thought-provoking reading extravaganza.

Reviews

."..sometimes cynical, sometimes melancholy and very often humorous looks at a social landscape not all that different from our own...Darwin's Bastards may not say much about the future, but it has plenty to tell us about the way we live today."--"Los Angeles Times"."..one ideal kind of anthology...Gartner's introduction is an excellent entree into it, too, being finely balanced between intellect and humor."--Booklist, Apr 13, 2010."..beyond getting a glimpse of reality through the lens of the future fantastic, the best reason to read this collection is that it is damn entertaining, and funny too. ...there truly isn't a bad one in the bunch"--The Globe and Mail
