Entanglements

By Sheila Williams & Sheila Williams &
Entanglements by Sheila Williams & Sheila Williams &  digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

12 award-winning science fiction authors from around the world offer original tales of relationships in a future world of evolving technology.

For fans of anthologies like Soonish and Netflix's Black Mirror

In a future world dominated by the technological, people will still be entangled in relationships—in romances, friendships, and families. This volume in the Twelve Tomorrows series considers the effects that scientific and technological discoveries will have on the emotional bonds that hold us together.
 
The strange new worlds in these stories feature AI family therapy, floating fungitecture, and a futuristic love potion. Imagine genetic alterations to code for altruism, or digital avatars that can interface with other avatars on dating sites, running sample conversations to find appropriate matches, or artificial assistance animals.
 
Contributions include Xia Jia's novelette set in a Buddhist monastery, translated by the Hugo Award-winning writer Ken Liu; and a story by Nancy Kress, winner of 6 Hugos and 2 Nebulas. A full story list:
 
James Patrick Kelly, Your Boyfriend Experience
Mary Robinette Kowal, A Little Wisdom
Nancy Kress, Invisible People
Rich Larson, Echo the Echo
Sam J. Miller, The Nation of the Sick
Annalee Newitz, The Monogamy Hormone
Suzanne Palmer, Don't Mind Me
