This collection of 10 stories/novellas follows the established protagonist, Artemis Bridge as well as introducing us (i believe) to other characters from Ballard's later works. The short stories flow fast and easy but as the author explains in the introduction he doesn't seem to like the formula of the short story/novella. So though the stories move fast they don't always seem to take us anywhere or at least in my opinion.
While Ballard seems to like the cyberpunk world, i don't really feel like i am IN a cyberpunk universe. we do get to see some cyberware, and of course there is the requisite hacking scenes, which really shine but i would enjoy seeing more cyber added to this cyberpunk world.
The value on the Kindle collection is great so grab it, and enjoy. For other cyberpunk/shadowrun collections that you may enjoy check these out, Shadowrun: Spells & Chrome and another one that i just finished, Dead Dwarves, Dirty Deeds
You won't regret the money you spend on this if you've enjoyed the other Bridge Chronicles books.
