really liked it

Very awesome present from PK, presented with a lovely and kind card declaring "The World Is Your Oyster." Funnily enough, the effect of these short stories is one of science fiction dread and despair. I think I prefer William Gibson novels to these short stories -- there is too much world to cram into the short story, and too many of the protagonists start out and end as depleted shells who have lost their humanity. I would have preferred more redemption. The level of imagination, though, is really incredible.
