The Future

I found The Victoria Vanishing on the seven day shelves at our library. Christopher Fowler is a new author for me. One of his characters echoes some of my feelings about the future.
When I was young I fantasized about the future….Now that I’m living it, I find it all a bit tatty. I was expecting us to be on other planets by now. I wanted genetic transformations and orbiting cities instead of Internet porn and small improvements in personal stereos.
