Maps of the Edge
by Ian Creasey
This book contains 17 science fiction stories, all previously published in magazines such as Asimov's.
In the opening story, "Erosion" (which featured in three Year's Best anthologies), a cyborg road-tests his new body before leaving Earth for the stars. The remaining tales range from post-apocalypse archaeology to galaxy-spanning bureaucracy, via wacky inventors and lovestruck corporations.
