‘Summer Ice’ by Holly Phillips

with one comment

In contrast to the other stories in the anthology, this is not about changing the world but rather adapting to it. It is a lovely story, slightly too gentle for my tastes, in which both Phillips’s protagonist and humanity itself reconcile their nature and achieve a state of grace.

Near-future? Yes.
Optimistic? Yes.
Readable? Yes.
Good? Yes.
