New Sun Rising: Ten Stories
Lindsay Edmunds

These are linked stories, in the spirit of Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. They are about a sixteen-year old girl, Kedzie Greer, who was raised in a utopian community and leaves home to make her way in a dystopian society. The year is 2199; the place, the Reunited States. In the stories, technology coexists with a haunted world. There are witches and robots, ghosts and e-beasts.
New Sun Rising is magical realism for the internet age.
