Everything I read science fiction for!

While I like a good space battle as well as the next person, I ultimately read science fiction for the ideas. This book is filled with wonderfully crafted stories which examine fascinating questions. What does it do to the human heart when it is possible to suppress emotions? If it is possible to go back in time and witness history, should we do it? What is our real connection to the past?

Be patient and savor these gems. Great stories. Great characters. Loving performances.

variable quality of stories

very good definitely recommends if only for the title story which is truly unique and touching and superb. there are other stories which are less engaging and perhaps a bit hard to follow. I'd like to think that perhaps I was distracted, but maybe it was the story itself that played a part in my mental wandering during this collection.
