Product Description

CREATIVE DESTRUCTION presents 8 science fiction stories -- including two short novels -- by bestselling author Edward M. Lerner. All deal with the future of technology and computing.

The author writes: "Computing is mere decades young, a set of technologies we have scarcely begun to develop. It's already been quite a ride. Now: Imagine every gadget around you becoming ever faster, cheaper, tinier, more interconnected, more intelligent . . . especially more intelligent. The stories in Creative Destruction explore what we could face in the next half century or so: artificial intelligence, malicious software to makes us nostalgic for mere viruses, ever-more-perfect virtual reality, direct neural interfaces to computers, ubiquitous networks, and more. The internet. That was nothing."

Included are:

  • INTRODUCTION, by Stanley Schmidt
  • FOREWORD, by Edward M. Lerner
  • THE DAY OF THE RFIDS
  • SURVIVAL INSTINCT
  • WHAT A PIECE OF WORK IS MAN
  • BY THE RULES
  • INIQUITOUS COMPUTING
  • CATCH A FALLING STAR
  • SETTLEMENT
  • CREATIVE DESTRUCTION
