Description

His words were bright and hollow as the pitch in some Chamber of Commerce brochure, and I knew that he believed in them absolutely. Science fiction—at least according to its official dogma—has always been about the impact of technology.

The man's a unique individual, to say the least, so it doesn't surprise me that Greg Bear or Rudy Rucker's tales made the collection.

A red rose was tattooed against the pale skin on her left shoulder, its stem curving down between her bare breasts, where a thorn drew a teardrop of blood. As a result, she lures him into a trap, and several Freemasons (who are coordinating much of the resistance) capture him and take him hostage. It is also a coming of maturity for science fiction as the dominant form of postmodern literary expression.

At this point, Parker, the propaganda officer, arrives, along with a number of former ladies who are all hoping to seduce him to get a chance to "sleep in [his] clean sheets and raid his medicine cabinet" although Parker is "short, fat, and repulsive". The story's protagonist is a man named Rice, who works for a company that obtains natural resources and valuable artifacts from alternate timelines created in the past (whenever one engages in time travel, a new timeline forms, making it impossible to alter the original history). Morgan and McDonald are fine, but just too interested in playing with genre tropes to really hook me.

The American Revolution has occurred, but it was carried out with the support of the company, which used it as an opportunity to establish a puppet government in North America. And Cohen, whom I knew vaguely from the old days in New York, had invited me to lunch the day before I was due out of Heathrow.
