Technology features strongly in this solid speculative fiction collection by Rajaniemi (The Quantum Thief). His work is unabashedly in love with its genre, mixing complex technical jargon with classic, pulp-style plots along with a clear appreciation for speculative fiction.
Some stories focus on machines, but their characters still feel real, as in “The Jugaad Cathedral,” where a Second Life world may be a second chance for a disabled person. This delightful trip into imaginative worlds brings a fresh take to timeless ideas.
