Future on Fire

An anthology of stories edited by

School Library Journal
YA-- A provocative collection of short fiction, edited by one of science fiction's best-known names. Ironically, this is both the strength and weakness of this anthology. Card's selections are excellent and include an interesting range of approaches to science fiction in the '80s. Of particular interest are several stories from the cyberpunk school, as well as Pat Murphy's Nebula award winning ''Rachel in Love'' and Ursula K LeGuin's wonderful ''Buffalo Gals, Won't You Come Out Tonight.'' Unfortunately, Card takes the opportunity afforded by the introductions to the stories to lecture mercilessly. The quality of the entries, however, makes it worth overlooking this flaw, as YAs will quickly discover how to skip the ''boring parts.'' A good way to update science-fiction short stories in record time.
