Five Goofy Science Fiction Stories

(2011)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Readers know Hugo-award winner Kristine Kathryn Rusch for her serious, deeply thought-out science fiction. But the former editor of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction also has a silly side, one in evidence in the five stories in this collection.

Only one story, "Paparazzi of Dreams," is at all serious, although it has a very skewed perspective of the world. "Going Native," pretends to seriousness, like so many news stories do. In "Advisors at Naptime," a child saves the world only because she wants a nap. In "The One That Got Away," poker players thwart an alien invasion, and in Rusch's popular "What Fluffy Knew," a cat does.

Rusch takes her chosen genre seriously most of the time. But fortunately for readers, she doesn't take it seriously all of the time.

"This is science fiction writing at its best."

"[Rusch's] short fiction is golden."
- The Kansas City Star

"[Rusch] is already far better than should be allowed."
- Nexus
