Chasing Shadows

The story list for the new Chasing Shadows anthology from Tor Books reads like a Who’s Who of award-winning, bestselling science fiction authors… and somehow I’ve got a story in there, too.  It’s a bit of a rush to share a table of contents with David Brin, Neal Stephenson, Vernor Vinge, William Gibson, Robert J. Sawyer, Gregory Benford, Damon Knight, Robert Silverberg, Bruce Sterling, and quite a few more.  There must be dozens of Hugo and Nebula awards represented by this list, and tens of millions of books sold.  It should be an incredible read.  The hardback goes on sale on January 10, but of course you can preorder the book any time!

The theme of the anthology is our increasingly transparent society, where cameras are smaller, surveillance cheaper, and our lives are more and more public on social media.  Where is it leading?  The dawn of Big Brother?  Or a billion little brothers, all spying on each other?  How will our society change?  This collection of stories and essays is the answer to this question, as envisioned by some of the best science fiction authors in the field.  Check it out!
