 “A most promising and original young writer.”―Ursula K. Le Guin

We think we’re all moving together through space and time at the same speed and in the same direction, yet the universe is far stranger than that. The stories in this collection explore and celebrate this world and others and characters who are trying to make sense of the people they meet, what they see, and the challenges they face.

"While few of the stories really stood out to me as being exceptional, I enjoyed reading stories strongly imbued both with a non-Western (Indian) perspective and a strong environmental ethos. Her story "Sailing the Antarsa", which describes a colony world, in which all life is held as sacred, was particularly good in this regard; I would love to see this particular story expanded into a book"

“Lovely! What a pleasure this book is . . . full of warmth, compassion, affection, high comedy and low.”―Molly Gloss, author of The Hearts of Horses
