Branko Pihač – FUTURA

This book is the third short story collection by Branko Pihač. In his futuristic stories the author analyses and contemplates existing social phenomena, extrapolates them and pushed his characters into situations so similar to the current reality they induce us to thinking but also worrying. The collection of stories on androids is an excellent foundation for setting up a platform for communication with robots in the future; there are also several horror SF stories for the fans of the genre. These stories naturally comprise comprehensive storytelling features of the author – there are elements of humour, crime and master rendering of hardcore SF technology, while almost film-like direction of the storyline and often double-twists of the plot guarantee the excitement to the very end. Although the stories feature SF, a deflection from the reality, their lifelike quality makes the stories stick in your mind.
