It’s a compilation of short stories that all take place in the future. I read it in 2016 & I can’t for the life of me remember it. It’s written in English.
One of the stories was about these kids who find a dog, capture it & then after much debate, eat it. They have these worms or something in their stomachs that let them eat anything so they didn’t have to eat the dog but they did.
Another story was about this shot that everyone gets to stop them from aging. As a result kids are illegal. There is a detective whose job is to kill these kids for population control, he’s the main character in this story.
The story I remember the most was about this guy who works at a sewer plant I think. The story starts with him and his girlfriend at their apartment, she almost blows up the whole place because the oven is on with the gas & she has a lighter super close. He wakes up to this & shoves her out of the way(Everyone is kinda dumb in this story) She was trying to make him bacon. After being upset she tells him that she’s going with her friends to swim in the river, he tells her not to because the water is nasty, she ends up going anyways and when she comes back she tells him that her friend came out with a rash or warts I don’t remember.
She wants to have kids but in this world sometimes you get kids that are mutated & that stops him from trying. Anyways His boss is this lady who has a mustache & yells all the time. One of his coworkers is bald and has a scratching problem with his head. One day all the lights at the sewer plant go all red & this guy is trying to figure out what’s wrong. The phone number that he finds is old & out of service. He goes to a library to find out what to do only to find the library locked. He manages to get in and there’s an old lady who speaks with him.
