Bruce Sterling. Pictures from the Resurrection. (Meeting Infinity, 2015)

meeting infinityPointed satire from Sterling, who comes up trumps in a scathing, almost Ballardian look at those who fear alien invasion.

Texas is under siege from Ninja Zombies, south of the border, and whilst some in Fort Lucky are doing the best to rebuff them, others have other priorities, such as the General’s wife, for whom the basics of life are air con, room-service, dresses, jewellry and the like; the Russian billionaire Kutuzov and medic Antommarchi (names drawn from Napoleonic history).

Dark, dark humour.
