Fifteen original tales envision ever-more sophisticated technology-and the repercussions on humankind...

As our world and daily lives become more and more involved with and dependent on complex technology, concern over what the future holds increases. If computers develop genuine Artificial Intelligence will they still willingly serve humankind? If the machines rebel, can we shut them down? And what kind of world would we be left with if we did?

These are just a few of the questions explored in fifteen brand-new stories by some of science fiction's most visionary minds-inventive and cautionary tales about some of the futures we may be building for ourselves right now.

About the Author:

Martin H. Greenbergwas honored in 1995 by the Mystery Writers of America with the Ellery Queen Award for lifetime achievement in mystery editing. He is also the recipient of two Anthony awards. Mystery Scene magazine called him "the best mystery anthologist since Ellery Queen." He has compiled more than 1,000 anthologies andis the president of TEKNO books.He lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

From Booklist:

In this exceptionally strong theme anthology, Ed Gorman's "Moral Imperative," Jean Rabe's "Stalking Old John Bull," Rick Hautala's "The Hum," and S. Andrew Swann's "The Historian's Apprentice" are exceptionally good. Even a relatively straightforward military sf entry (Bill Fawcett's "Last of the Fourth") and others exploiting the old trope of computers assuming the role of God (Brendan DuBois' "The Unplug War," L. E. Modesitt Jr.'s "The Difference") are fresh and sometimes brilliant. No man-against-technology anthology being complete without a berserker yarn, Jane Lindskold joins franchise holder Fred Saberhagen to provide one. Vending more chills than chuckles, these tales are literate relatives of the Terminator flicks. Green, Roland
