Powered armor rocks our world, whether it's the ultra-realistic exoskeletons of the near future or the super-enhanced mecha of thousands of years from now. So we're excited to see anthology-editor extraordinaire John Joseph Adams doing a book of power-armor stories.
Here's the book's blurb:
From Starship Troopers and Iron Man to Halo and Mechwarrior, readers and gamers have long been fascinated by the idea of going to battle in suits of personal, powered combat armor or giant mechs. This anthology will explore the range of what can be done with the trope, from the near-future powered exoskelton technologies we might be seeing just a few years from now, to the combat armors of Starship Troopers and Halo, to the giant bipedal mechs of Mechwarrior.
