I saw the author a year ago at a conference where he gave a keynote about the future of automation and blockchain. When I saw he had written a book I was very curious, but did not expect this! A very well-written collection of stories, all set in the same world of the near future. Anonymity is the red line connecting all stories, as they all look at the problems of technologies that enable anonymity in one way or the other. Not all stories are five star, but some are truly outstanding. The picture painted here is realistic and might be close to what our future looks like. No killer robots and rebelling AI, no in this collection technology is cool and disruptive and has not been forced by humanity, but embraced by us without thinking of the consequences. I personally think that is exactly what happens every day. The origin of the authors from the tech area really is his biggest advantage here, as he gives his world a frightening actuality.
My favorite was "Decypher Me", which is a micro thriller almost begging being made into a movie. I felt the characters here had a unique chemistry. Other stand outs were "Repent, the App Demon says", "The Specs are alright" and "Chainbreaker". The weakest one was "Proxy-by-nature", because I felt it had much more potential left unused.
I can only say I would buy more of this!
