Lisa with Child, by Alex Black

Writers of the Future XXVI

Black goes for as many controversial jugulars as possible. Karin, sixty-five-year-old woman, fresh out of wars with her AI military pal, has just been informed by said pal that she will be having Karin’s child. Karin has to come to grips with this.

Tour-de-force of controversy: Lesbians, check; lesbians with children, check; abortion, check; woman loving machine, check; older woman raising children, check; machine raising children, check; breaking military rules, check. I’m sure there are others I’m missing. With only one story beat here, however, it has to flashback to their war days. It should be interesting to follow Black’s career.
