San Francisco Book Review/Sacramento Book Review
“Teens and adults will delight in the short fiction contributed to this title by fifteen of today’s hottest dystopian writers… I enjoyed seeing fifteen different worlds for the price of one book and I loved the fact that this compilation was filled with diversity of race and sexual orientation. I haven’t seen very many anthologies deal with dystopian environments, but I do think that Brave New Love did it well, and the obvious play on Huxley’s Brave New World title is relevant and smart. The volume reads fast and gives the reader much to ponder. Highly recommended.”
"A fascinating anthology with strong writers contributing their best. With stories ranging on the spectrum from blatant in-your-face problems to subtle commentary and abstract points about society the collection has a short story for every reader to enjoy.”
