A waiter, strapped for cash, has a watchful AI implanted before work. With a new body, an injured woman is brought face-to-face with trauma from her past. A microchip lets pet owners gain too much insight into their dog's thoughts. In his debut anthology, Futures Gleaming Darkly, Clinton W. Waters offers a window into the human experience in a world that is both mundane and fantastic. Join a host of queer characters as they navigate love, loss, and life in a technology-enhanced not-so-distant future.
