Seeds of Change attempts to confront many of the pivotal issues facing our society, such as racism, global warming, peak oil, technological advancement, and political revolution. How well it does this I will leave up to the reader to decide. What the anthology does deliver on for sure is a thought-provoking array of fiction that I enjoyed reading.
Crystal Rain by Tobias Buckell is a "Caribbean style" science fiction novel with a little bit different style because of that. While I did enjoy the world building, I wasn't initially intrigued enough to jump into the next book in the series. Eventually I did, though, and I loved Buckell's other installments.
