In a Sneak Peek From FAST FORWARD 1 Anthology
Amherst, NY -- At BoingBoing.net, Cory Doctorow has posted a wonderful review of the soon-to-be-published (February 13, 2007) FAST FORWARD 1, an anthology Publishers Weekly called “outstanding” in a starred review.
Cory Doctorow—the digital rights activist and popular science fiction writer whose short story collection Overclocked is reviewed in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly (”Doctorow is rapidly emerging as the William Gibson of his generation.”)—was just named by Forbes as one of the top 25 “Web Celebrities” for 2007. He’s the co-editor of BoingBoing.net, a very popular and hugely influential weblog about technology, culture, and politics that ranks in Technorati's top 10 and averages over 300,000 actual unique visits a day.
In addition to praising FAST FORWARD 1 as a whole (and the very idea of the new series it launches), Doctorow directed BoingBoing readers to "one absolute knock-out story...that is among the most exciting pieces of fiction I've read in years”: Paul Di Filippo's “Wikiworld.”
Pyr has offered “Wikiworld” online as a tasty sampling of what's in store for those who buy the complete anthology FAST FORWARD 1. BoingBoing.net linked to it here.
See "Wikiworld" online here.

Enjoy these samples until next month’s publication of FAST FORWARD 1, available now for pre-order. Media review copies will be available next week.
