Summary:
"...Reading between the frames of canonical cyberpunk texts like Blade Runner, Alien, and The Terminator; 'video-game' footage of smart-bomb strikes in the Gulf War; and documentary interviews with cubicle warriors who call their long-distance kills 'bugsplats,' Yehya tracks the predatory technologies that have stalked us in our dreams ever since Frankenstein."
