A collection of short stories from this cyberpunk writer. Recurring themes/elements include Russia/Cold War, the Middle East, organized crime and drugs... a lot of it reminded me a bit of J.G. Ballard. It culminates in a truly weird what-if story about rock critic Lester Bangs and an obscure underground comic book artist meeting and getting married. Some weird stuff! ( )

It would not be inaccurate to say the short stories presented here are meticulous, or thorough. It would be somewhat unfair, though, perhaps giving the impression they are uptight and ideologically relentless. Instead, let's say the stories are complete. Yes, Stirling has some serious political point of view, but it never gets in the way of the story. ( )

Some interesting pieces in this short story collection, but nothing truly amazing. Lots of Cold War and post-Cold War ruminations. ( )
