Egan, Greg  
Permutation City
In Permutation City, life is just code: you have been digitized, scanned, and downloaded into a virtual reality program. A Copy of a Copy. Paul Durham keeps making Copies of himself, but his Copies keep changing their minds and shutting themselves down. Maria Deluca is an Autoverse addict, spending every waking minute with the cellular automaton that lives by the mathematical laws of physics. Paul offers to design a seed for Maria that will allow her to indulge in her obsession. There is one catch: she will no longer be able to terminate, bail out, and remove herself. She will never be her flesh-and-blood self again. Is this what she really wants?

Fox, Rose (editor) / Older, Daniel José (editor)  
Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History
Twenty-seven original stories reveal the people whose lives have been pushed to the margins of history. In 1514 Hungary, peasants who rose up against the nobility rise again - from the grave. In 1633 Al-Shouf, a mother keeps demons at bay with the combined power of grief and music. In 1775 Paris, as social tensions come to a boil, a courtesan tries to save the woman she loves. In 1838 Georgia, a pregnant woman's desperate escape from slavery comes with a terrible price. In 1900 Ilocos Norte, a forest spirit helps a young girl defend her land from American occupiers.
