Publisher's Summary

Hugo award-winning and New York Times best-selling author N. K. Jemisin sharply examines modern society in her first short story collection.   

N. K. Jemisin is one of the most powerful and acclaimed speculative fiction authors of our time. In the first collection of her evocative short fiction, Jemisin equally challenges and delights listeners with thought-provoking narratives of destruction, rebirth, and redemption.    

In these stories, Jemisin sharply examines modern society, infusing magic into the mundane and drawing deft parallels in the fantasy realms of her imagination. Dragons and hateful spirits haunt the flooded streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow South must save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises. And in the Hugo award-nominated short story 'The City Born Great', a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis' soul.

loved it. big fan of some of the reading

some really nice reading, good collection of short stories. if you like jemisin this is a no brainer, if you haven't read her before it's a good place to start, or just go read her trilogy as that one is lovely
