|Hong Kong Future Perfect (2016). Edited by Peter Humphreys and Elizabeth Solomon.|
Eternal themes of love, lust, greed and violence collide with satirical takes on post-colonial politics and reminiscences on the city’s fascinating past. Metaphors take flight. Families are divided. Escapism is considered. Characters for whom the city has become unrecognizable resort to Virtual Reality. Sci-fi landscapes are ultra-real for others. Amongst the angst there is laughter; amidst the optimism lurks an unexplained malaise.
Twenty-one compelling short stories from 20 established and emerging local and expatriate authors chart the hopes, dreams and fears of Hong Kong’s keenest literary voices.
