Life During Wartime

by Lucius Shepard

Review

Life During Wartime

Science fiction with a strong sense of setting or atmosphere is always preferable for generating a sense of wonder and drawing me into the book. Like the works of Latin American fabulists like Borges or Marquez, this book has an almost cinematic phantasmagoria about it even as it tells a very hard-edged story about war in the near future. It also compares favorably with Richard Kadrey’s Kamikaze L’Amour, though this is the stronger book.
