Review: IF Anthology

4412b9_250f85125dfe46c3b89fd1e973fe46b2“IF” – the word itself has helped to turn science fiction into science fact; making the impossible become possible. Celebrating a new theme with every annual release, 2015’s IF anthology boasts 36 creators coming together to tell 15 thrillingly original stories of time, space, technology, and other tales from beyond.

While this anthology boosts various stories, in sub-genres of science fiction they have one thing in common. Despite the briefness of each story, they each seem to share the same purpose of what a story is supposed to be, entertainment. I will admit some of the stories could have been easily drafted into the old Twilight Zone episodes. While others, would have a challenge adapting to another medium ,which give them their own greatness.

In a similar vain to the stories, each one shares a different approach to its artwork. However they all share the same monochromatic  aesthetic. Which gives the entire anthology a sense of unity, despite the different artistic approaches in both story telling and artwork.
