Okay, here's the thing about this book of short stories. It's all about making the world a better place, and initially all the proceeds went to Greenpeace, but it's kinda preachy, and at times very heavy handed. It contains short stories by some masters in the cyberpunk/slipstream field, though, and in the end I wasn't sorry I read it.
