Ten speculative fiction short stories and flash fiction, written by the award-winning author of Pearseus and Runaway Smile. Although they seem to be concerned with various themes, there are certain passions that run through them. What is the nature of reality; digital and corporeal? Is there more to the world than we can see? How far can we trust our senses? The anthology includes the following stories: "Infinite Waters": A woman seeks her future at a carnival. She discovers more than she expected. "The Things We Do for Lust": Beware of time travelers bearing gifts. "James' Life": A man with nothing to look forward to but oblivion, discovers it's not that easy to escape his life. "Two's a Crowd": Blood runs thicker than water. Especially when you spill it. "What's in a Name?": A trip to the tropics has an unexpected ending. "The Lucky Bastard": How far will the luckiest man alive go to escape his luck? "A Twist of the Tail": A confused woman meanders through a sleepy town. But not all is as it seems. "Is There a Doctor in the House?": A high school student just loves to experiment. "Sex and Dinner": A timeless combination. Or is it? "Would You Like Flies With That?": Nothing's scarier than a supermarket. "The Hand of God": Nothing has prepared a grizzly veteran for this meeting *. (* first published in The Power of Six) Humorous and poignant, these short stories are exciting, intriguing and imaginative.
