Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present ~ By Cory Doctorow

I bought "Overclocked" mainly because I had read Cory Doctorow's "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth" in another anthology. I thought that short story was brilliant, well-written and it stuck with me for a while.

Unfortunately, the other stories in this book just don't compare to "Sysadmins". I read the whole thing cover to cover, and I enjoyed it, but it didn't live up to what I'd hoped. Granted, I really liked the *concepts* behind the stories, but the stories themselves didn't seem quite finished. They weren't quite polished.

Like I said, I liked it enough to read all of the stories, I just wish there had been *more*.
