This collection of stories feels chillingly prescient. These tales are just-around-the-corner futuristic. Here we have characters, who raise their entire families online, and meet with support groups in the real world to grieve their digital losses. Sex is now innercourse, where partners exchange packets of data. There is the advent of broadcasting everything you do through contact lenses, where you can also check your eye-mail. A wink can mean much more than a wink in this world. Put your smart phone down for a while and read these tales of warning.
