THE BEST ALTERNATE HISTORY STORIES OF THE 20TH CENTURY Edited by Harry Turtledove with Martin H. Greenberg INTRODUCTION Harry Turtledove WHAT IF Most science-fiction ideas dont come naturally. Most take a degree of intellectual sophistication that came only with the Industrial Revolution. Its hard to write about the effects of technology before theres much in the way of technology to write about. But alternate history isnt like that. Its as natural as those two mournful little words up there. ...

Bruce Sterling Black Swan The ethical journalist protects a confidential source. So I protected Massimo Montaldo, although I knew that wasnt his name. Massimo shambled through the tall glass doors, dropped his valise with a thump, and sat across the table. We were meeting where we always met: inside the Caffe Elena, a dark and cozy spot that fronts on the biggest plaza in Europe. The Elena has two rooms as narrow and dignified as mahogany coffins, with lofty red ceilings. The little place has ...

Bruce Sterling Holy Fire 1 Mia Ziemann needed to know what to wear at a deathbed. The net counseled simplicity and sincerity. Mia was a ninety-four-year-old Californian medical economist, while the prospective deceased, Martin Warshaw, had been her college sweetheart some seventy-four years previously. Mia could expect some prepared statement. There would very likely be a bequest of some sort. Conversation would involve an attempt to put Mr. Warshaws life into retrospective order, to supply the ...

Paul Di Filippo, Bruce Sterling The Scabs Progress The federal bio-containment center was a diatom the size of the Disney Matterhorn. It perched on fractal struts in a particularly charmless district of Nevada, where the waterless white sands swarmed with toxic vermin. The entomopter scissored its dragonfly wings, conveying Ribo Zombie above the desert wastes. This was always the best part of the program: the part where Ribo Zombie lovingly checked out all his cool new gear before launching into ...

With the almost Disney-like mimicry typical of SIMNET operations, the warriors were briefed in an actual field command-post, with folding camp-stools, fly swatters, and stenciled jerry cans. The young tankers wore green- ...
