“Reprogrammed local dog population”

That’s a specific choice of words. Were the local dogs cyborgs *before* Sandman found them?

They were, a lot of them strays at that point. He took them in and re-purposed them. I think there’s something about their implants that allows him to give them specific simple instructions or something, like surveillance or stealing a particular object, all things you could teach a normal dog anyways.

Question: I know it’s not that relevant, but I just noticed that there’s a discrepancy between the signature of the unaddressed infected email sent to Dan. In the digital edition of Dreamspace, the mail is signed by “xxfuckallsystemsxx”, while on the paper/tapas version, it is signed by “xxevexx”. Which one is canon?

I imagine xxfuckallsystemsxx as that was Eve’s operator handle.

I thought so, but the paper edition is more recent.

So, it’s been many years so it’s hard to remember my thought process exactly, but I do think we retconned it for the book, as Eve probably wouldn’t sign an email to her ex-partner with a DS handle (but also, once Eve was more fleshed out as a character I started doubting whether the handle is at all appropriate for her, but thats a different story :v )
-cryo

I applaud the period-correct paper.
