"Future City Blues" is a set of three short stories by three different authors. Each paints a picture of the future, not only in the setting of the story, but because each is a teaser to a series. "The Wrong Tom Jacks" by Simon Kewin introduces Simms, a genehunter. In this futuristic world collecting clones of the famous departed is a hobby of the rich. Nevermind that it's illegal. Simms' neural implants help him stay one step ahead of the authorities. That is, until a client hires him to get the DNA of the wrong Tom Jacks. "Tripler: The Beginning" by Neil Volger explores a brand-new terror: Tripling, the ability of a person to split into three very real versions of him or her self. Milo James Fowler wraps up the trilogy quite nicely with "Doppleganger's Curse." What is a celebrity to do when her look-alike is trying to kill her? Amanda Forsythe hires Charlie Madison, private investigator. While each introduces a series, each works very well as a stand-alone story. You won't have to buy the sequels to appreciate the narratives herein. But if you like sci-fi, action or adventure, you will want to. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
