About this title


A collection of short stories, including "Video Star," "No Spot of Ground," "Wolf Time," "Surfacing," and "Flatline"

From Publishers Weekly:

Williams, best known as a writer of cyber-punk novels ( Hardwired ), branches out in this collection of nine well-crafted short pieces "Video Star" and "Wolf Time" are fast-action cyber-punk. "Flatline" and "The Bob Dylan Solution" edge into a new subgenre, bio-punk, more fully realized in "Dinosaurs" and "Witness." The latter is the introductory story for George R. R. Martin's Wildcard series, but it stands well on its own.what is this a reference to?/mc ."Side Effect" is also bio-punk, but is so depressingly contemporary and believable as to hardly qualify as science fiction. have restored cut phrase because it doesn;t make sense otherwise. sss The best story is "No Spot of Ground," set in an alternate universe where Edgar Allan Poe is a general in the Confederate Army.
