Pump Six and Other Stories by Paolo Bacigalupi

Paolo Bacigalupis debut collection demonstrates the power and reach of the science fiction short story.

REVIEW: Pump Six and Other Stories by Paolo Bacigalupi

CONS : The end of the book came too quickly, and this collection is a short one. Certainly not for readers who consider themselves faint of heart. In this case, the man is put onto a memory storage device and ends up in the slums, where he falls into the hands of a street urchin. There are close parallels with the present day here: tensions with China, and the growing divide between the slums and high society, not to mention the clash between religion and advanced technology. This story was easily one of my favorites, for the environment and characters that Bacigalupi sets up, but also for the conceptualization of a world that could be right around the corner. The resulting story is a scary one, with the original premise, but also holding to a core story: what will people in power, unchallenged power, do with the tools available to them?
