**This updated edition contains the first chapter of D.L. Young's multi-award winning novel Soledad, book one of the Dark Republic Series**
In this powerful collection of stories, D.L. Young infuses edgy, dystopian science fiction with thought-provoking social commentary.
Eleven gripping tales, including new works exclusive to this collection, explore the near-future impacts of advanced robotics, artificial intelligence, automated warfare, and genetic engineering. The award-winning story The Reader, Training the Fundies, and the title work Juarez Square envision an anarchic, cutthroat existence along the US-Mexico border. In Ximena, a defiantly unconventional woman opens a robot brothel in Madrid. The Gianni Box tells the tale of a stolen artificial intelligence that becomes the hottest designer in the fashion world. The Jacob Seeds takes place on a man-made floating island nation, where a scientist's revolutionary breakthrough in genetically-modified food becomes the prize of a high-stakes, winner-take-all political battle.
This book marks the emergence of a compelling new voice in speculative fiction.
