From the Publisher

A lifetime of thought. Collected Essays includes nonfiction pieces from Transreal! (1991) and Seek! (1999), and many newer essays as well. Twice the length of a regular book, Collected Essays includes sixty essays and a hundred illustrations. The book falls into seven parts: (1) "The Art of Writing." Manifestos and talks about writing science-fiction. (2) "Silicon Valley." Cool scenes seem riding the computer wave for twenty years. (3) "Weird Screens." Obsessively beautiful graphics—cellular automata, artificial life, fractals, space curves, and virtual reality. (4) "Futurology." Playful raps and speculations. (5) "The Philosophy of Computation." Digital immortality, artificial intelligence, and the birth of universal mind. (6) "Personal Stories." Reminscences of strange days. (7) "Mentors." Great minds and wild freaks: Kurt Gödel, Martin Gardner, Robert Scheckley, William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Ivan Stang and Stephen Wolfram.
