Anyone else picked this up? It's available for free from their website in PDF format. It's a collection of short stories based on the premise that, at some undetermined point in the future, we invent a machine that can tell you, accurately but cryptically, how you are going to die. While some of the stories are just what you'd expect - a story about a strange predicted death and how it plays out - many more involve the societal and psychological effects of everybody knowing how they're going to die. I found it to be a pretty good read, and fast. As an added bonus, a lot of webcomic authors contributed to it, including Ryan North, Randall Munroe, David Malki !, and Christopher Hastings. And it's free, of course.
