The woman singing goes by the name “Thumbalina Gugielmo”. The image, undeniably vivid to his contemporaries, cries out for a footnote to explain it to twenty-first-century readers. There are no hackers (though there is some hacking), no “net,” and the corporate overlords that would become so prevalent are here crime lords. In fact, most believed they had performed better with the conventional guns before they saw the results.

Invited contributors will be notified by May 15, and the full submission is due in July 2016. There's also Noir, which my wife really liked.
