Shine On

Not that long ago, I made the fairly safe prediction that some enterprising editor would put together an anthology of optimistic sf, and lo! my prediction has come to pass…

Jetse de Vries to edit Shine, anthology of optimistic science fiction.

I’m going to go out on a limb and make a further prediction that this will be an anthology to look out for. To go all mystic for a second, there is an interesting energy around the idea of optimism at the moment, both within science fiction and beyond. If the Shine anthology picks up even an ounce of that (and I think it will), its going to be a fascinating read.
