    Children of the New World introduces listeners to a near-future world of social media implants, memory manufacturers, dangerously immersive virtual reality games, and alarmingly intuitive robots. Many of these characters live in a utopian future of instant connection and technological gratification that belies an unbridgeable human distance while others inhabit a postcollapse landscape made primitive by disaster, which they must work to rebuild, as we once did millennia ago.

    Alexander Weinstein's debut story collection, Children of the New World, imagines a near future of social-media implants and instant connection, environmental collapse and postrevolution discord. It grapples with our unease in the modern world and how our ever-growing dependence on new technologies has changed the shape of our society. Alexander Weinstein is a visionary new voice for all of us who are fascinated by and terrified of what we might find on the horizon.
