Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present

I, Row-Boat and After the Siege were two favorites, though all the stories have something to recommend them. My only complaint is that Doctorow is sometimes so eager to prove a point that he occasionally short-changes the story itself, or crosses that fine line between smart and preachy. That said, this is a wonderful collection, and well worth your time.
