In the Before, when the government didn't prohibit large public gatherings, Luce Cannon was on top of the world. One of her songs had just taken off and she was on her way to becoming a star. Now, in the After, terror attacks and deadly viruses have led the government to ban concerts, and Luce's connection to the world--her music, her purpose--is closed off forever. She does what she has to do: she performs in illegal concerts to a small but passionate community, always evading the law. Rosemary Laws barely remembers the Before times. She spends her days in Hoodspace, helping customers order all of their goods online for drone delivery--no physical contact with humans needed. By lucky chance, she finds a new job and a new calling: discover amazing musicians and bring their concerts to everyone via virtual reality. The only catch is that she'll have to do something she's never done before and go out in public. Find the illegal concerts and bring musicians into the limelight they deserve. But when she sees how the world could actually be, that won't be enough.… (mais)

A bit too earnest for me, but creepily prescient for a 2019 novel to imagine a locked-down world. ( )

This book was phenomenal! In a police state world, people traded freedom for security. But there's always the call of music and art and community. Given everything that's going on today, it is easy to make that trade. But we have to remember to reclaim our freedom once the danger is past. An amazing five star read! ( )

I just finished this Nebula Award winner published just before the pandemic, but perfectly reflecting it. Set in the new future the world has suffered a pox pandemic plus terrorism resulting in congregation laws and curfews. Megacorporations run the economy, people (who can afford it) practice extreme social distancing interacting mostly, using hoodies, as avatars in virtual reality. Rosemary Laws is a very efficient Vendor Service provider for SuperWally, which one reviewer described as a merger between Wallmart and Amazon. She provides her usual efficient services for a musician and manages to get a virtual pass to a live concert, her first. This is the first half of the equation, the one I can understand because I'm a law-abiding work a day kind of gal. The other half of the equation is Luce, musician and artist extraordinaire. The book does a great job of describing the life of a musician and the need to play new music in real-time for live audiences. Rosemary gradually wends her way into Luce's life of music when she takes a job with StageHoloLive, the giant corporation built to deliver music to the masses, but their music is finely choreographed and its musicians are all beautiful and compliant. The goal of SHL is both to deliver virtual performances but also to ensure that all venues for live performances, even the ones that have evaded the congregation laws, are shut down. There's so much here pertinent to the current time of social distancing and mega-corporations, and it's a great story to boot. ( )

What happens to musicians when it's illegal for crowds of any size to gather? In a future to like our present to be anything but horrific, a smallpox like plague has completed the work of terrorists in keeping people as isolated as they can be and vast majority of jobs are done from home for huge monopolies that deliver by drone. Two women, Luce the musician and Rosemary the recruiter try to be true to who they are and the music they love. ( )

Pinsker, Sarah. A Song for a New Day. Berkley, 2019.
Near-future science fiction seldom seems as prescient as Sarah Pinsker’s Nebula-winning A Song for a New Day. Published less than six months before the outbreak of COVID-19, it describes a world in which social isolation has become the law after an outbreak of a pandemic that was coincident with a rash of bombings. Most of the bombers are now in jail and the “pox” has subsided, yet the social isolation rules, called congregation laws, remain in place, and agoraphobia has become common. Live music has been forced into small underground clubs that are frequently raided by the police. Most commercial music is now produced holographically by bands that work in isolation chambers, their performances stitched together by computers. The story brings together two women, Rosemary, an agoraphobic farm girl who has somehow become a talent scout for StageHolo Live, the largest of the online music producers, and Luce, a musician whose career was cut short by the plague. Pinsker, a singer-songwriter as well as a novelist, writes beautifully about the experience of performing before a live audience. She also delivers some very pointed barbs at the impersonality and inhumanity of the music industry. The characters here are irresistible, and I look forward to reading more by Pinsker. ( )
