The Sea of Trees (2012)

The Future is Japanese 5/13

I wasn’t even aware that The Future is Japanese anthology has Fantasy mixed in with the SF, but I can’t even claim false advertising, since the much smaller subtitle of the anthology mentions both. Not that I’m really that bothered, since Rachel Swirsky’s Sea of Tree is a compact and engrossing story that is well written and works well overall. It’s about a forest where suicides hang around after death and a lone poacher has to deal with her own past as well saving a young girl from joining the ranks of the lonely undead.
