One of the web’s most celebrated high-tech culture mavens returns with this second collection of essays and polemics. Discussing complex topics in an accessible manner. Cory Doctorow’s visions of a future where artists have full freedom of expression is tempered with his understanding that creators need to benefit from their own creations. From extolling the Etsy makerverse to excoriating Apple for dumbing down technology while creating an information monopoly. each unique piece is brief. witty. and at the cutting edge of tech. Now a stay-at-home dad as well as an international activist. Doctorow writes as eloquently about creating real-time Internet theater with his daughter as he does while lambasting the corporations that want to profit from inherent intellectual freedoms.

W złotej erze fantastyki naukowej (lata 30.. 40. i początek 50. XX wieku) królowała hard science fiction z linearną narracją i bohaterami rozwiązującymi problemy naukowe lub techniczne. a czasami ratującymi świat. Każdy. kto tęskni za taką dawną SF. znajdzie w zbiorze opowiadań Piotra Prokopowicza ów ulotny klimat. który współczesna literatura chyba już utraciła (zyskując zapewne w oczach niektórych literaturoznawców).
Oprócz interesujących historii z kanonu tematów fantastyki naukowej (podróże w czasie. eksploracja kosmosu. kontakt z obcymi. niezwykłe wynalazki. mroczna przyszłość) są tu również opowieści fantasy przesycone dyskretnym humorem i dystansem (np. o Mikołaju. którego trudno nazwać świętym. albo o przydrożnym kamieniu).

After weeks of meticulous investigation. they had a name. But they also had yet another victim – a young woman whose identity was a mystery. a possible missing link. It was imperative they find her.
