An often-terrific new Canadian anthology of politically based science fiction tales from around the globe and beyond. Okay, not from beyond, but how cool would that be? From my Quill & Quire review (here): “The late, great Kurt Vonnegut wrote that if a writer “tries to put his politics into a work of the imagination, he will foul up his work beyond all recognition.” Strange Bedfellows sometimes wavers and stumbles, but the talents on display put the lie to his theory.”

Strange Bedfellows, an anthology edited by Hayden Trenholm, provides us with a series of politically-oriented science fiction tales. It has stories that analyse the concepts of equality and diversity, stories that study possible evolutions of the human diet, and those that analyse legal topics like capital punishment for corporations or judging children as adults.

Like I said before, Strange Bedfellows contained a mixed bag of stories, both in their topics and in their power to make the reader stop and think. I found some more powerful than others, but, overall, I have been glad to read this anthology for stories like Tried as an Adult, which has probably become one of my favourite reads of the year.
