My partner and I decided to go out for dinner last night. I know that weekend dinners will always lead us to coffee or tea shops as a night cap so I made sure I had my Kindle with me, but on the last minute, I grabbed the book Darden gave me this month and shoved it in my partner’s backpack.
I ended up reading the real book instead.
I read the first short story in the collection: Cassandra Clare’s Some Fortunate Future Day.
Some Fortunate Future Day was set in the midst of a war on an alternate world. It talks about Rose and her father’s inventions, and Rose’s adventures with them. The story is a typical science fiction but darker and feels more… rusty. Don’t trust me though since I always regarded steam punk as unpolished science fiction – grittier and darker.
It always feel forced to prepare a review longer than it took the time to read the literature. So I’ll leave you some handwritten notes for now.
What to expect from Some Fortunate Future Day?
