The Telepath Chronicles (The Future Chronicles)
David Gatewood

In THE TELEPATH CHRONICLES, fourteen of today’s top sci-fi writers share stories of the uncanny and unexpected.

Telepathy. Just a far-fetched bit of science fiction “hocus pocus.” But is it? With today’s giant leaps forward in technology and biotechnology, with people constantly surrounded by sophisticated yet invisible communication networks, and with a rapidly increasing understanding of the brain’s inner workings . . . is it so hard to imagine that we might be able to develop direct mind-to-mind communication?

Or might it not be the case that evolution alone, in the right circumstances—if not on this planet, then on others—could give rise to creatures with telepathic abilities?

This collection of fourteen stories explores the ramifications of a future where telepathy is real. From that first glorious moment of discovery, to the subsequent jealousies and class divisions, to the dangers of weaponization and the blessings of medical miracles, The Telepath Chronicles promises to take you inside the creative minds of some of today’s top science fiction authors.

I’m really enjoying these collections, edited by Gatewood. In this one, Peter Cawdron’s contribution didn’t impress me as some of his others, but I still picked it up given that he was opening the collection.

Pretty much all the stories were gripping here. The Locksmith, The Null, Little Blue, No More Lies and Word-Bound stood out, but every single one was worth reading and, as with the Robot Chronicles, I’ve put authors on my list to go look up their other works.
