My Name Is Legion

My Name is Legion - Roger Zelazny What's astonishing is how little these stories have aged, and in fact, they may be more relevant today than when they were written. Zelazny's central character for all three stories is a man who managed to erase all electronic traces of himself, and in a society where everybody is known (and tracked), he becomes something of a freelance agent. The stories themselves grapple with man's attempts to control technology that is frankly beyond our means (that relevance thing again), and while the characters are not as deeply drawn as in most Zelazny's work, they tell us enough to keep the stories moving. Not Zelazny's best, but still worth a read.
