A collection of stories by

 
 
"Here for the first time, fantasist Richard Parks has collected eleven of his pure quill science fiction stories, including: "Keeping Lalande Station" about a colony scout who's been in space just a little too long. "The Great Big Out," concerns the future sport of Storm Riding and a life-changing decision by an aging master of the game. "Passing Zero Point," original to this volume, is about the dating scene in a future that's practically already here, and the title story, "Our Lady of 47 Ursae Majoris" explores the persistence of mystery and wonder in a totally rational universe. These stories and more make this a volume lovers of old and new school science fiction should not be without."

"Discovering Richard Parks's fiction is like discovering a wise zen master pumping gas at a service station or a weathered swami slinging burgers at your favorite corner diner: transcendence in the midst of the ordinary, right where it ought to be." - Terry McGarry, in Interzone
