Cyborgs have been used to thrill, frighten, inspire, and educate us about just what it is to be human. Since the term was first coined in 1960—by Manfred Clynes and Nathan S. Kline—the science has finally caught up with the theory. There are cyborgs among us. Hugo Award-winning editor and cyborg, Neil Clarke has assembled here twenty-six of their stories as imagined by some of the best and brightest science fiction writers today. Among them are winners and nominees of the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Yinhe, Theodore Sturgeon Memorial, and Campbell Award for Best New Writer, among others.
