it was amazing

Let me get this out of the way. I am a Sterling fan, I love everything he's done unconditionally, but I think A Good Old Fashioned Future, is his best short story collection, and the best introduction to his work. From the soft and thoughtful "Maneki Neko", to the gonzo cyber-entrepneur-terrorist-punk of "The Littlest Jackel" to the tour de force trio of linked stories at the end, Sterling shows us precisely how strange our very human future is going to be, and how we might survive and thrive in it.
