A Good Old-Fashioned Future book. While perhaps not quite as impressive or balanced as Bruce Sterling's two previous collections, Crystal Express (1989) and Globalhead (1992), A Good Old-Fashioned Future is a fine book, combining a surface of ebullient humor with a core of keen intellectual concern.
A Good Old-fashioned Future is a paperback collection of seven short stories by former cyberpunk guru turned sociocultural prognosticator Bruce Sterling. Most of the works here come with impressive pedigrees, ranging from a Hugo Award for "Bicycle Repairman" to Hugo nominations for "Maneki Neko" and "Taklamakan. It's a less successful piece than "Taklamakan" but also a good read. Not all of the stories in this collection have the edgy, w-will-be-like quality that typifies Sterling's best work. But even when Sterling isn't at his best he's entertaining, and A Good Old-Fashioned Future is certainly that.

He flipped open a newspad, tapped through its menu, and began alertly scanning a German business zine.
