Alex Irvine. For All of Us Down Here. (Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jan/Feb 2014)

fsf040102Nice take on the Singularity, from the perspective of teen whose parents ‘Singled’ when he was a toddler. He’s living with his gramps, in the increasingly ramshackle world that the Singularity has left behind.

There’s a lot that the young lad isn’t being told, and hints are dropped throughout, but there’s no reveal at the end. Good sense of place and of the teen protagonist.

More from this issue.
