The Warriors meets Mad Max meets My Gal Friday, Tomorrow’s Children is a madcap romp across a nearly ruined New York, a satirical high fantasy epic condensed to 300 pages, with enough bloodletting, betrayal and barbed witticisms to satisfy the most sanguinary readers. It’s a mash-up of everything I like in genre fiction distilled and offered without a chaser, and I’m thrilled that Angry Robot will be serving it up soon.
