True Names ... and Other Dangers

True Names ... and Other Dangers: Vernor Vinge Baen Books, 1987 ISBN 0-671-65363-6

Hacker demigod Richard Stallman believes the title story of this book "expresses the spirit of hacking best". This may well be true; it's certainly difficult to recall a better job. The other stories in this collection are also fine work by an author who is perhaps one of today's very best practitioners of hard SF.
