    1. If one were to use the 16 stories in this anthology as a guide for what to expect in America’s future, then we can expect a bleak future indeed. I suppose I should have deduced that from the cover art.Unfortunately, there is very little to recommend here. First of all, the title is misleading as many of these stories aren’t so much about America’s future but instead are speculations on the future in general. Several stories are nothing more than political sarcasm, and given the publication [...]

    2. Future Americas: All right, not great.JDN 2456205 EDT 13:17.I finished reading Future Americas, a collection of short stories by 16 current big-shot SF authors about, as you might imagine, the future of America. It's a mixed bag. I do like that they had a fairly even mix of men and women authors. The fact that all the authors are American is, I suppose, to be expected given the topic. But it would have been interesting to get some outside views on America's future.I guess these specific reviews [...]

    3. I was afraid as I hit the seventh story in this 16 story anthology because I was bored or confused by every work so far; my reading partner, who gave me the book, was dreading us reading another one together. Then finally we hit upon a story that we could feel connected to, that wasn't confusingly written, and that we wanted to talk about in not simply complain about. That was "Family Photos" by S. Andrew Swann and it gave me the motivation to keep reading. After finishing all 16 stories I can s [...]

    4. There's a few interesting stories, but for the most part these are fairly unmemorable, and a few of the more memorable ones are actually annoying. Most unforgivable of all, this collection doesn't come close to living up to the theme promised on the cover, of "Future Americas". Most of these are just stories of things that could happen in the future, most of them don't particularly have much more to do with America besides happening to be set there. I checked this out to kill time on my commute [...]

    5. Nothing noteworthy. I skimmed it a second time to see if any stories were worth keeping. They weren't. Since the book includes sacrilege about digging up Jesus' bones and cloning the DNA a number of times for political purposes this one goes in the trash instead of getting traded.

    6. Anthology of the daftest SF-stories I have ever read. If the bragging of how many awards these crap authors is true I've lost all respect for the SF-awards they supposedly have won. Anyone can write better and more interesting stories than these :-(

    9. Yep, I have a story in this anthology. Can the future of the American west be different than most imagine? See what you think.
