From the Inside Flap:

Polemicist, provocateur, futurist, ‘visionary in residence’, Bruce Sterling has been out there, personally sharpening the cutting edge of science fiction for more than thirty years.From his first story “Man-Made Self” in 1976 to his latest “Kiosk” in 2007, Sterling has written science fiction that is fast-moving, sharply extrapolated, technologically literate, and as brilliant and coherent as a laser, as he himself once said of William Gibson. His “Shaper/Mechanist” stories were an essential part of the cyberpunk movement of the ’80s, just as his “Leggy Starlitz” and “Chattanooga” stories wrangled the near future of the ’90s better than anyone else. Whether writing about the deep future in Schismatrix or the deep present in Holy Fire, he has developed into the best science fiction writer working in the world today.
