       Additional Information  
      "For those like me who think cyberpunk is SO last millennium, here's a terrific, thought-provoking, widely varied anthology of stories giving alternative visions of our online future. LIVE WITHOUT A NET contains nothing but first-rate fiction, from giants like Stephen Baxter, and from those who deserve to be giants like John Meaney; it's a DANGEROUS VISIONS for the digital age."

    - Robert J. Sawyer, Nebula Award-winning author of HOMINIDS

    “Live Without a Net” is a collection of eighteen stories from some of today’s top talents, visions of futures near and far, glimpses of alternative histories, other dimensions, and more—anything goes, but in each story one or more of the contrivances of the cyberspace era has been replaced by something unexpected and strange. Here then is science fiction unplugged, its wires cut, set free to be Live Without a Net.
