    PDF FREE [A Good Old Fashioned Future] I am now completely convinced that Bruce Sterling should not write novels His short stories are so much better than any long form writing that he's ever published that I don't understand why he doesn't write Compiling seven stories written during the tumultuous nineties Sterling offers his strongest work to date Clear visions of probable futures that are far concise and far less meandering than his normal workThe collection open

    PDF FREE [A Good Old Fashioned Future] This collection of Bruce Sterling's short works is wonderful The stories date from the nineties and so it is nice to look back at his speculations and see how right he was how wrong he was and how we are on the way to realizing many of his speculations Most of the stories could ualify as sci fi cyberpunk and that makes them delightful I particularly enjoyed two stories Deep Eddy and The Bicycle Repairman which are inte

Maneki Neko 1998 What if a botnet were made up of people who in exchange for anonymous favors performed carefully choreographed tasks that on their own were of no grave import but in the aggregate amounted to a human denial of service attack Good hook for a story Sterling also uses suirt to mean move data from one device to another well ahead of Microsoft s use of the verb to describe file sharing on their Zune music playerBig Jelly 1994 Cowritten with Rudy Rucker This one is uneven a stereotypical Texas oil man is supposed to be 25 but talks in a manner that made it impossible to cast anyone other than the expected grizzled Texas Businessman see The Simpsons for one archetypal example in the mind s eye an increasing dread throughout Act II fails to pay off and we re left wondering if the world comes crashing to an end or if everyone just Gets Happy playing with giant fake jellyfish A brief interlude at Monterey CA and concerning John Steinbeck rings some good nostalgia bells for me Sterling shows foresight in describing Fort Ord s closure which shouldn t have yet happened when this was written A fair satire of business ethics and what happens when Research meets Commerce a cautionary tale from the early 90s What happened to Bill Gates We don t learn it but it sounds awfulThe Littlest Jackal 1996 We re trying to hack the structure of multi national cashflows It s the Infobahn It s the nineties It s borderless and it s happening What starts as a weird post everything espionage tale turns into I don t know what exactly but Leggy Starlitz represents the new hotness while this guy Raf the name no doubt is a reference to the old school Red Army Faction is old and busted Nobody ends up with what they re after anyway and Leggy Starlitz pitches into the dark Baltic water without any gear The titular Littlest Jackal is a liberal arts major Finnish Revolutionary Awesome And Sterling uses a lot of exclamation pointsSacred Cow 1993 Bruce looks to a 2050 ish future where a generation ago Mad Cow disease has decimated Western beef eating cultures leaving India a global economic and cultural powerhouse Cell phones never got invented I guess and Bollywood Schlock is high entertainment The story is a little nothing just a toothless little riff on this what if Were mad cow and Bollywod A Thing in 1993 I don t rememberDeep Eddy 1993 Bicycle Repairman 1996 Taklamakan 1998 The last three stories in this collection form what could easily pass for a long novella They re set in the same universe and tell the story of three loosely related characters Deep Eddy features the titular data courier on a trip to Germany during a Wende a sort of anarchist s street party where he s caught between the forces of a Cultural Critic and a Moral Referee The Bicycle Repairman of the second story is Eddy s one time roommate who gets caught between a rogue political AI and its handler Taklamakan features an urban spider climbing enthusiast who showed up in Bicycle This last story is the best of the bunch and probably of the whole collection almost at the edge of cyberpunk and space opera it asks the heaviest of Bruce s What Ifs What if instead of genocide you disposed of your ethnic undesirables by telling them they re going on a starship trip but instead you bury them in arcologies underground Taklamakan is bizarre tense and packs a lot story into its pages than ought to be there
