Through the Looking Glass, Darkly...
Steven Mohan's 'Eternal Terra' is a gem of a short story collection. The 5-story package offers some tantalizing glimpses into how a future earth might look - some decidedly downbeat, while others are cautiously optimistic.
In my favorite story, humanity's been all but wiped out. Those who survived must refashion a hard-scrabble existence from the ruins, and perhaps confront a terror unleashed at the end times. Sound like a familiar concept? It might be, except that the survivors aren't the humans - but their genetically enhanced canines.
Each of the remaining four stories offer a unique, often surprising take on deep-sea exploration, a survival experiment which pushes its participants to the limits, and a story that speculates whether the U.S. will remain a sovereign state.
A deeply satisfying collection of stories that's an excellent introduction to the work of Mr. Mohan.
