I love the UnCommon anthologies because they never fail to have wildly imaginative Sci-fi, Fantasy, and Horror short stories. So far in this one, I have only read P.K. Tyler’s “Ecumenical Outpost 732”, a short story in her excellent Jakkattu series. This series shows a dystopic, post-apocalyptic future with vivid pespectives from people in various part and far-flung places in the society. This story is a brief 13-pages, but it is really deep. It is an eloquent, evocative snapshot of a beautiful child. Her wonder and vivacious are impacted by a bleak existence mapped out for her life, and then she meets a boy with an even bleaker life. If you like dystopic stories sometimes, you have to try this one. I can’t wait to read more in this anthology.
