Prepare yourself for 10 trips into the unknown, as 10 of your favorite writers spin tales of fantasy and science fiction the likes of which you have never imagined.

In February of 1973, Nancy Weber put an ad in the Village Voice offering to trade places with another woman, a stranger, for a month. In hopes of better understanding what was fixed and final in each person - and what was invented, and therefore might be reinvented - they would use each other's names, live in each other's homes, love each other's loves, and do each other's work.
Spark has stolen her brother’s armor and his sword, and now she’s looking for a job. But this job is going to bring much more than she bargained for, and even her wits might not be enough to save her. A short story from Guys Read: Other Worlds, edited by Jon Scieszka.
