How I Picked This Top 10 Science Fiction Short Stories List
There were at least 2 books in the series, maybe more, they were near future no more than about years ahead of today and probably less and they revolved around the adventures of a team of reporters. I remember that one of the books in the series began with a chap who was both a decorated soldier and a respected artist using some sort of bomb to sculpt a huge statue.
