The first story in this collection of the author's best short fiction, "Millennium Babies," looks at the "losers," the infants who are not the first born in the New Year. Then in the novella "The Gallery of His Dreams," a finalist for the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards, the life and talent of Matthew Brady, a daguerreotype photographer who photographs the horrors of future wars and atrocities in order to preserve the past, is detailed. The collection also includes "Skin Deep," "Echea," "Coolhunting," "Going Native," "Harvest," "Strange Creatures," "Monuments of the Dead," "Spirit Guides," and "Burial Detail."
