Thumbs up Free (DRM-free) Humanity 2.0 [Science Fiction Future Species Change Anthology]

Humanity 2.0 edited by Alex Shvartsman (ISFDB, Wikipedia) is an anthology of themed science fiction stories, exploring ways in which humanity might change as the result of interstellar travel and/or alien contact and what it means to be human as well, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Phoenix Pick Press.

This is their featured Free Book of the Month for January, and is one of their original publications. It contains a mix of 15 new and reprint stories from authors including fellow MR member authors Robert J. Sawyer and Nancy Fulda, as well as many others including John Varley, Jody Lynn Nye, Ken Liu, Cat Rambo, and more.

Currently free through the month of January directly @ the publisher's dedicated promo page (DRM-free ePub & Mobi bundle available worldwide; follow the instructions on the webpage to reset the price in the cart to $0.00)

The tie-in deal for this month is for a bundle of 2 additional anthologies for just $7: The Best of Galaxy's Edge Magazine edited by Mike Resnick, featuring stories from PPP's own online SF/F magazine, and The Best of Hal Clement edited by the late Lester Del Rey, a vintage collection of the Golden Age science fiction author's work, which has previously been offered free and also in tie-in deals, so like me, you may already have a copy of it.

Description
What will it mean to be human in the future? How will we evolve in order to reach the stars?

Fifteen short stories collected in this book examine how interstellar flight might change humanity itself. Will we choose to upload our minds into a singularity? Enhance ourselves with alien DNA? Will our bodies remain the same, but our culture and societal norms adapt to accommodate for effects of time dilation, or become subsumed by advanced alien cultures?

Hugo and Nebula award winning authors, bestsellers, and some of the hottest new writers in the field of hard science fiction imagine an array of possible futures—from bright to dystopian—and different permutations of what's in store for us as a species.
