Written almost fifty years ago, this still prophetic computer-SF novella begins in a virtual-reality Chessgame world, and ends with a powerful metaphysical vision of our limited human consciousness, as chessman Steven Kaskey struggles to confront his suspicion that there is more to his world than he is permitted to perceive.
Also written as a screenplay, King's Knight is something like a cross between Tron, Logan's Run, and Matrix, and it long predates all three.
This anthology also includes the novella The 12-Volt Casanova, sci-fi that might have been, a spicy and humorous account of a 1960's grad student
who invents a device that will record and broadcast feelings, and several short stories and other things, from the man who steals a remote-controlled genetic service gnome to commit a crime, to the man with a nice safe job flying fighter planes, to the woman who wants to love her baby over and over again.
