Would you try another book from Neil Clarke - editor and/or Amy Tallmadge and Jeremy Arthur ?
I think not. I know it's a matter of taste, but 90% of these stories were not to my liking. Not enough hard SF. And with all respect to the writers, who work so darned hard, I found their prose weak. The last two stories, however, were excellent, with muscular writing.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Tallmadge and Jeremy Arthur ?
Anyone, I think. Either I know nothing about word pronunciation, or the narrators/producers were lazy in not determining pronunciations before recording . See: arboreal, archipelago, etc.

To me, who has done some amateur programming, all the stories of software have emotional difficulties are difficult to read. Someone had to program in emotional matrixes and sensory selectivity or just type in the words the software says under whatever sensory load. I am afraid that the smart readers already know that any writer who does the "HAL" thing is hacking the science out of science fiction and giving in to generalized stupidity.
