This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I received an early copy of this book from the publisher via Library Thing in exchange for an honest review.

Glass and Gardens is an anthology of short stories all about futures with worlds that are essentially utopian, or in short an optimistic version of steampunk. Overall I gave the book 3/5 stars because it wasn't my cup of tea in the end. Take a look down below for what I have to say about each story, going from highest rating to lowest.

The Spider and the Stars: 4/5 ⭐️
The Heavenly Dreams of Mechanical Trees: 4/5 ⭐️
These two stories were my favorites out of the anthology. I found The Spider and the Stars to be such a cute and interesting story to read about a future where humans learn to love bugs, and The Heavenly Dreams of Mechanical Trees was a hopeful story about a sentient mechanical tree who was soon going to stop functioning.

Caught Root: 3/5 ⭐️
Fyrewall: 3/5 ⭐️
New Siberia: 3/5 ⭐️
These three stories were also enjoyable to me, but in the end, didn't capture my attention like the others had. They were nice stories but I felt like they could have gone a little further and been made better overall. I liked the characters and story but they just fell a bit short for me.

Riot of the Wind and Sun: 2/5 ⭐️
Watch Out, Red Crusher!: 2/5 ⭐️
The Call of the Wold: 2/5 ⭐️
Camping with City Boy: 2/3 ⭐️
A Field of Sapphires and Sunshine: 2/5 ⭐️
Midsummer Night's Heist: 2/5 ⭐️
Grover: Case #C09 920, "The Most Dangerous Blend": 2/5 ⭐️
Amber Waves: 2/5 ⭐️
Grow, Give, Repeat: 2/5 ⭐️
Cable Town Delivery: 2/5 ⭐️
Women of White Water: 2/5 ⭐️
Under the Northen Lights: 2/5 ⭐️
The remaining twelve stories were all kind of the same to me. I read them all but they were just very lacking for me. I found that I didn't care much about the characters or the story of them altogether and I wasn't interested in what was going to happen. While they were good in theory, they weren't my kind of thing to read. ( )

These took me forever to work my way through due to tech issues with my Kindle. I'm not sure if that's ironic or not. They are a nice set of stories with some interesting themes and it was nice to read sci-fi with a positive bent. They feel topical with enviornmental themes running through a lot of them, so a fun uplifting read, but nothing that blew me away. ( )

Nice. I like solarpunk better than most of the SF anthologies I've been reading - much more hopeful. Some of the stories seem to be of people who haven't thought things through too well - the one with glowing people, have they forgotten all about therapy? Telling someone who's constantly depressed that she needs to achieve a "more acceptable shade" is...amazingly stupid. And the kids who's been taught that the way to make his anger socially acceptable is to smash things is worse off. It's a good story but I think that society is heading the wrong way. I liked the flying librarian, and the garden graffiti, and the trees - there were a lot of good stories in there, and the worst ones were only uninteresting rather than actively unpleasant as I've found in most other SF anthologies I've read recently. I've got the next one, I'll be reading that soon. ( )

This was an early reviewer copy. I enjoyed the variety of stories representing positive ways of dealing climate change and its effects on society. Yes they are about the "hotly" contested subject of global warming but the stories are good and include the changes technology is having on civilization. Recommended reading. ( )
