TCM Virtual Tours Presents: Perfect Flaw


Perfect Flaw (editor Robin Blankenship): Readers everywhere are invited to experience adventures of a dystopian nature in the anthology Perfect Flaw, from editor Robin Blankenship! Featuring seventeen speculative fiction tales, spanning many genres, Perfect Flaw explores the subject of societies gone wrong.

From “utopian” societies masking an underlying controlled state, to stories of people fighting back against repression, in hopes of a better world, the flaws that create a dystopian atmosphere are brought to light. Thought-provoking and entertaining, Perfect Flaw will be a welcome addition to any reader’s collection of dystopian literature.

My Thoughts
This collection of stories has something for every reader.  From the light of utopia to dystopian's darkest depths.  There are so many worlds and points of view available to the reader, that it is nearly imposible to choose a favorite.
With the influx of dystopian literature that is flooding the market at the moment;  it is a true treat to have so many well written stories at one's fingertips.
This is a book that is meant to be read and reread.  A treasure trove of multifaceted gems of the written word; waiting to be discovered time and time again.
