This collection could possibly represent the first flowering of post-postmoderism: visions of the world that re-imagine reality as more realistic than we can imagine. A compelling presence of a holograph and the up-to-the-second feeling of the most advanced art.

Very mixed feelings on this collection. Some of it is fantastic, especially the novella at the end, Westward etc., My Appearance, and Lyndon. Some, especially the early stuff, is much less interesting and (for me) forgettable. Hence a 3 stars, but some stories were 4 or 5 star.
