Astounding Tales from Tomorrow

Darwin's Bastards is a collection of short fiction set in the not-so-distant future. At first glance you might not notice that the all-star cast of authors is Canadian-only, because the range of works is delightfully broad. There are stories from established names in speculative fiction (William Gibson, anyone?) as well as writing from authors who are known for non-speculative fiction (Douglas Coupland, Yann Martel), and a few local names thrown in (Heather O'Neill, Neil Smith).

The Globe and Mail has lots of information for you here, so I'll just say this: the futures we access in Darwin's Bastards are manifold, dark, and have eerie similarities to our own reality.
