If the mix of amazing writing talent like N.K. Jemisin, Charles Yu, and Seanan McGuire doesn't convince listeners to devour this futuristic audio anthology, then the overflow of narrator talent should. LaValle and Adams's anthology of complex technological futures features characters who are marginalized people and even some silver linings. The narrators include talented folks like Nancy Wu, Darrell Dennis, and Soneela Nankani, most of whom take on at least one story. The only elements that feels out of place are the occasional background music and sound effects that are used in some stories and not others. Overall, the caliber of works is both engaging and exciting, especially as delivered by narrators who know how to bring dynamic characters to life.
