From Elizabeth Bear comes a near-future tale about a woman who was engineered for combat in a world that's running out of time.

Jenny Casey is a former Canadian special forces warrior living on the hellish streets of Hartford, Connecticut, in the year 2062. Her artificially reconstructed body is failing her, but a government scientist from her old life thinks she is perfect for his high-stakes project.

Suddenly Jenny is a pawn in a battle being waged on the Internet, the streets, and in the complex wirings of her man-made nervous system. And she needs to gain control of the game before a brave new future spins completely out of control.

Press Reviews

  • SFReviews
    A remarkable SF writer who's leaving many of her contemporaries in the dust
    What Bear has done in Hammered is create a world that is all too plausible . . . an unnerving peek into a future humankind would be wise to avoid
  • Richard Morgan, author of Altered Carbon
    A gritty and painstakingly well-informed peek inside a future we'd all better hope we don't get
  • SFRevu
    A tightly plotted page-turner. The noir universe [Bear] creates is as hard-edged as the people who inhabit it
  • New York Review of Science Fiction
    A tense, involving and character-driven read . . . a doozy of a ride
  • SF Crowsnest
    A roller coaster of a good thriller
