A Good Old-Fashioned Future

Author:   

Description for A GOOD OLD-FASHIONED FUTURE by Bruce Sterling:

FROM THE SUBVERSIVE TO THE ANTIC, THE UPROARIOUS TO THE DISTURBING, THE STORIES OF BRUCE STERLING ARE RESTLESS, ENERGY-FILLED JOURNEYS THROUGH A WORLD RUNNING ON EMPTY -- THE VISIONARY WORK OF ONE OF THE MOST IMAGINATIVE AND INSIGHTFUL WRITERS AT WORK TODAY.

A GOOD OLD-FASHIONED FUTURE They live as strangers in strange lands. In worlds that have fallen -- or should have. They wage battles in wars already lost and become heroes -- and sometimes martyrs -- in their last-ditch efforts to preserve the dignity and individuality of humanity. A hack Indian filmmaker takes the pulse of a wounded and declining civilization--21st-century Britain. A pair of swashbuckling Silicon Valley entrepreneurs join forces to make a commercial killing -- in organic underground slime and computer-generated jellyfish. A man in a Japanese city takes orders from a talking cat while pursuing a drama of danger and adventure that has become the very essence of his life.

From The Littlest Jackal, a darkly hilarious thriller of mercs and gunrunners set in Finland, to a stark vision of a post-atomic netherworld in his haunting tale Taklamakan, Bruce Sterling once again breaks boundaries, breaks icons, and breaks rules to unleash the most dangerously provocative and intelligent science fiction being written today.
