The First Law of Thermodynamics Plus… by James Patrick Kelly

Trade Paperback – PM Press – Aug 2021 – 128 pages

James Patrick Kelly is known for finding the future unnervingly nearby, and he enters with his deep empathy and dry humor at the ready. A longtime favorite of SF readers is at the top of his game here. In the title story, a college acid trip becomes a window into an unexpected and apparently unavoidable future. In “Itsy Bitsy Spider” a disappointed woman’s robotic girlhood takes her by the hand and leads her back to the destiny that eluded her. Two short plays render alien invasion terrifyingly mundane and death annoyingly impermanent. “The Best Christmas Ever” is celebrated by sims and droids instead of the usual jolly elves. The Outspoken Interview and a bibliography round out this long-awaited new collection.

From the PM Press Outspoken Authors series.
