Over at Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist, we get a sneak peak at The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction, Volume 3 by way of a brand new short story by Daniel Abraham, author of the Long Price Quartet. Abraham is quickly making a name for himself as one of the brightest new writers in the business, so this is a great way to get introduced to his work.
From Fantasy Book Critic’s review of The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction, Volume 3:
Another superb story, this time about a mysterious corporation called Fifth Layer which dominates current tech with extraordinary inventions that are unorthodox and inelegant, but work. There is talk of the Roswell theory, namely that Fifth Layer is a front for secretive aliens, so older investigative reporter Jimmy is put on the case since a senior executive of Fifth Layer was his girlfriend thirty years ago. Highlight of the anthology for idea-based sf.
