I was looking forward to some bursts of warlike action in these short stories but only a couple were what I call page turners. The premise of remote warfare is a different kind of sci-fi story but these were mostly lacking in creative perspective. Not horrible but certainly not good enough to make me want to look for more short stories from these authors.
Anthology of short stories re (what else?) the future of war, and as usual with an anthology, it's a mixed bag. My favorites are "Codename: Delphi," about wired-in civilian contractors in an office assisting soldiers in the field via cameras and sensors. Lots of tension and good writing. That one alone makes the book worth the read.
Also good are "ANTFARM" (crowd-sourcing wartime targets) and "A Stopped Clock" (street vendors in Korea in a virtual future when everything suddenly goes offline).
The rest of the stories aren't quite. Some are better written, others worse, and some are downright strange. Let's call this one three stars.
