Future Sins VOL I, a Collection
Future Sins Volume One features the first four of our basic sins: Greed, Envy, Wrath and Sloth. For we have not overcome our basic flaws as humans but carried them on into our future.
Greed, the most virtuous of all modern sins, will drive men forward towards the next invention, the next frontier, for what they can find and exploit. Four stories explore this theme, told from the viewpoint of both the exploited as well as the conquerors of the weak.
For those who do not have the gifts given to the few, there is always envy. Envy is the subtle sin, that lets a teacher hate her students, even when they are destined to save the world. These stories range from a world where we can communicate with animals, to one where children are owned by the rich.
Wrath is my favorite sin. The rage of the righteous, or the insane; both equally valid in a future where vengeance is scientifically enhanced. These stories will make you wonder whether in the future anger will only be confined to humans.
Sloth takes its time, starting in Volume One. This lack of drive and initiative may, or may not, be a virtue. Especially when the slowest creature in the universe speeds up and comes to kill us all.
