A collection of stories by

 
 
Over the past decade, M. Shayne Bell has published a body of short fiction that ranges from ghostly fantasy to the cold steel of hard science. This collection pulls together seventeen of Bell's best stories, including:
·Hugo Award Finalist "Mrs. Lincoln's China," in which an old woman tries to save pieces of presidential china during a riot in Washington, D.C.Nicholas Bakalar, Ph.D. is a writer and book editor.

He is the author or co-author of more than 10 books, including AIDS and Mental Illness·"Lock Down," about Marion Anderson's one concert in Salt Lake City, and what happened and what could have happened.· "The Thing about Benny," in which an ABBA devotee searches cubicles in office buildings for plants extinct in the wild--finding cures to disease in the process.·"How We Play the Game in Salt Lake," about a man dying of AIDS who finds magic--and a way to help people who need help--even at the end of life.· "Balance Due," in which a man is cryogenically preserved--and brought back 400 years in the future where a lot has changed, but where he has reason to search for his friends and family, and especially for his wife. There are stories of love here--and high adventure; loss--and danger unanticipated. Through these stories, fight for Bangkok a thousand years in the future when it sits icy on a frozen plain, flee 500 miles down a cable of the elevator to space, and paddle umiaks on a low-gravity whale hunt inside a terraformed arctic-simulation asteroid. Here are futures to make come true; here are also futures that should never come true--but will.
