From text-based adventures to first-person shooters, dungeon crawlers to horror games, these twenty-six stories play with our notion of what video games can be—and what they can become—in smart and singular ways. With a foreword from Ernest Cline, bestselling author of Ready Player One, and stories from: Daniel H. Wilson, Charlie Jane Anders, T.C. Boyle, Cory Doctorow, Rhianna Pratchett, Andy Weir, and Hugh Howey.
New York Times best-selling author Daniel H. Wilson delivers a thrilling sci-fi series that raises hard questions about free will and the nature of good and evil. Humanity has discovered the root of all evil: the Malnoro virus—a devastating malady that modifies the neural pathways for empathy. Quarantine Zone asks the question: If we could "cure" ourselves of the capability to do evil, should we?
The survivors of Earth-2’s war with Apokolips find themselves on a new world, but can Green Lantern, Power Girl, a new Batman and the other heroes of Earth-2 create a new world that’s better than the last, or will their interference and good intentions doom this world, just like the old one?
