Let's discuss "Children of the New World" by Alexander Weinstein

  • Hi friends,
    this new collection of short stories (paperback) introduces us to a near-future world of social-media implants, memory manufactures, and dangerous virtual-reality games. It is "brilliantly imagined," "mesmerizing," and "exquisitely written." What if technology offers us psychological comforts that the real world has denied us? What if it fulfills some of our deepest yearnings that have nothing to do with, say, sex?

    Read as many stories as you can, each tale is no more than 20 pages long. Unabridged Bookstore on Broadway has the book.

    We'll go for dinner/drinks after the discussion as usual.
