True Names: the Opening of the Cyberspace Frontier
Once in a great while a science fiction story is so visionary, yet so close to impending scientific developments that it becomes not only an accurate predictor, but itself the locus for new discoveries and development. True Names by Vernor Vinge, first published in 1981, is such a work.
XION Book Club admin recommends that readers buy the paperback edition because Richard Stallman did not want his essay published in the ebook version.
