In Alexander Weinstein’s Children of the New World (Picador), social media implants, memory manufacturers, dangerously immersive virtual reality games and intuitive roberts shape our experiences and in which, for example, your only children might be digital (and lost after a reboot after a viral attack). “The new world Weinstein imagines in this mind-blowing debut collection of stealthily speculative stories is our world fast-forwarded to the eviscerated future we seem hell-bent on creating.” - Booklist. Alexander Weinstein, is the director of the Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing and an associate professor of creative writing at Siena Heights University.
