I loved this book! While the stories are thought-provoking, the language is not overly technical, considering it's near-future, hard sci-fi premise. (that being said, one of my favorite stories "arties aren't stupid" is written in vernacular, so it can take a bit of getting used to.)

Only thing I'd add is that it's been well received enough that several of the stories have been turned into audio fiction over at escapepod.org - a free sci-fi fiction podcast. That's actually why I tracked this book down.

And it's staying in my permanent collection, so you'll have to find a copy somewhere other than me!

Seeds of Change is an anthology that contains nine short stories confronting issues that our society faces today such as: racism, global warming, peak oil, technological advancement, and political revolution. All with a Science Fiction twist. This is a book that my activist friends will enjoy, and if as readers, we don't understand the problems our world faces, Seeds of Change can really open our eyes to them. I really enjoyed what John Joseph Adams has done here. As an author and editor he has put this information out there in an entertaining way, in an attempt at making people more aware.

The authors are knowledgeable about the issues, and have taken the time to write intelligent Scifi stories for readers to enjoy. Seeds of Change is a fantastic addition to anyone's book collection, and I highly recommend it to all my readers to check it out. John has also put together a great website for Seeds of Change that contains three free stories (with excerpts of the rest), as well as interviews, author bios, and a book trailer featuring dramatized excerpts of each story and an original musical score.
