    All translations in this anthology were excellent. In terms of content, I liked some of the stories, and the ones that disturbed me, I skimmed over.

    (Review by one of the authors) I liked this book and I'm honored that one of my stories is included in it, along with fresh science fiction stories from all over the world. A few favorites in specific aspects: Best writing: "Citizen Komarova Finds Love", by Ekaterina Sedia. By far. Idea I liked most: "HOSTBODS", by T.L. Huchu. Most weird stories: "What Lies Dormant", by Swapna Kishore, and "Creative Surgery", by Clelia Farris. Most nightmarish and close to present idea: "Grey Noise", by Pepe Rojo.

Most impressive and mature story (and the longest one, to be fair): "Proposition 23", by Efe Tokunbo. All in all, a very worth reading anthology, full of fresh insights on the genre, intriguing ideas and competitivie writing. Many thanks to Francesco Verso and Bill Campbell for their tireless work on international science fiction.

    I could read an ARC of this book thanks to Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. This anthology collects the best short fiction published in Italy by the editor Future Fiction and it displays authors from all over the world. You can immediately perceive and compare the vast range of different sensitivities and matters dealt with by the authors: caregiving robots, maternity and teleportation, home automation and even the mating of giant pandas among the others.

The quality of these stories is very high but my favourite one (and by far) was "Proposition 23" by Efe Tokunbo for both the writing and the worldbuilding, a dystopia you will remember about and I can't wait to read more from this author. Just read it!

    I picked this book up at the 2019 Small Press Expo in Bethesda and finally got around to reading it, and I’m glad I finally did. Most of the stories skewed slightly dystopian, but the shreds of hope were much appreciated in these times of Covid... For me, the three standouts were Xia Jia’s “Tongtong’s Summer” for its sweetness and simplicity, Clelia Farris’s “Creative Surgery” for its bizarre audacity, and James Patrick Kelly’s “Bernardo’s House” for its unsettling dynamics.

    I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. A really good collection of short science fiction stories. I enjoyed all of the stories in this collection - my favorite was Grey Noise by Pepe Rojo, which is really a fantastic story. It was apparently published in 1996, which is kinda astonishing. I'd recommend this book for just this story alone, and all the other stories in this collection are great as well. Definitely recommend it for fans of science fiction.

    Twelve short stories, ranging from good to excellent, all previously published in Italy by Francesco Verso, curated by Bill Campbell of Rosarium Publishing. It includes a wide range of international authors, from the US, UK, Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America. Original publications range from 2003-2016, plus one that appears for the first time in this release, the first story by that author to be translated into English. Most are SF dealing with high tech, a few could be considered post-apocaly Twelve short stories, ranging from good to excellent, all previously published in Italy by Francesco Verso, curated by Bill Campbell of Rosarium Publishing.

    Short stories, so uneven, but the first and last are fantastic and there are many good ones in between.

    Future Fiction, anthology I don't usually enjoy short stories on a regular basis as I prefer stories that keep me involved for long periods. Future Fiction, however, is an anthology filled with intriguing ideas of what the future might look like, and what that might mean for individuals in the future. The diversity of culture found in this book also played a part in keeping my interest. I would recommend this book for mature teens and up, for those who like to think out of the box.
