FutureShocks Review in Locus

Nick Gevers has reviewed FutureShocks in the January 2006 issue of Locus. Like Publishers Weekly, he singles out Robert Charles Wilson's "The Cartesian Theater," calling it an "extraordinary novelette." Gevers further says:

"Lou Anders is an accomplished anthologist, adept at choosing themes likely to encourage originality of concept from his writers. His latest project, FutureShocks, is not quite as inspired as his last (Live Without a Net, in 2003), but is very solid all the same.... FutureShocks does everything the great SF anthologies of old did, stunning the reader with novelty, making the future seem like a cornucopia again, sometimes a menacing one, admittedly, but something of the infinite horizon it once was."
