    • Hot Mess is an anthology of short stories speculating on the effects of climate change on people and earth. Each story is different, with two stories written by Rachel Lynn Brody, but each focusing on the possibilities in our future. Although none of the worlds may be ones that we would want to live on, they aren't as dystopian as can be found elsewhere and in some you might even get a hint as to how things could change if we only made different decisions.

    • Female voices clear and creative - I was as disturbed by the wording of the stories, the emotions hit so hard. Loved the outcomes. The thematic flow of the stories is that in my mind, a porch, a sunny afternoon and a cup of tea is the perfect setting to read a book such as this.

      This review is also available on Joe Follansbee's blog.Climate change is relatively unexplored territory in fiction, including speculative fiction, and most of the pioneers in this area have investigated the subject via the novel. Relatively few writers have tackled it with the short story and other short forms. One collection, however, corrects this mistake. Hot Mess: Speculative Fiction About Climate Change, edited by Rachel Lynn Brody, brings together six stories by five writers (including Br [...]

      MARK'S REVIEWReviewing an anthology of short stories written by different authors is a difficult task, for one has to judge theme, writing style, technique, level of editing, and so forth. I came up with the 4-star rating based upon all those criteria. Judging stories individually would have brought a range of scores from 3 stars to 5 stars. A few of the stories did not interest me, or the writing technique bothered me somewhat. One story in particular needed another pass at editing (in my opini [...]

    • The handful of stories in Brody's collection clearly have an agenda of raising consciousness of and concern about the implications of climate change. Socially or politically motivated art is tricky: it can succeed in communicating its objectives without necessarily exhibiting the general hallmarks of literary merit. In literary terms, I found Hot Mess a mixed bag. These stores don't always succeed for me even at the propaganda level: a world in which exposure to the sun literally brings instant [...]

    • This is a collection of six short stories. The last two stand out as being truly superb stories, the others are less memorable.She Says Goodbye Tomorrow, is a piece of dry realism. Decades from now a family is losing their vineyard due to changing weather conditions. Haute Mess is a fancy short piece about an item of clothing. In Between the Dark and the Light is a fairly traditional science fiction story. It reminded me of Yevgeny Zamyatin. Actually I don't think it really has anything to do wi [...]

    • This is a really fantastic anthology (if I do say so myself) with illustrations for each story. Some of the stories are humorous, some luminous, and each one another poignant essay of what may become of us if our world continues on its present course. Each of the authors are donating a part of their proceeds to the charity of their choice.
