Exploring the theory that media is the real opium of the masses, this collection of timely and provocative speculative fiction brings together some of the most talented contemporary fantasy, horror, and science fiction writers. Stories by J. G. Ballard, Lisa Tuttle, Robert Silverberg, and William Gibson, among others, combine noir city elements with thought-provoking scenarios that look at the future of television, radio, and the internet. With a focus on the possible horrors stemming from entertainment devices found in every home, this chilling anthology is a unique survey of the theme of the evolution or devolution of media.
