A brilliant collection by SF master Terry Bisson

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Maybe different story selection. It's a good broad swath of Bison but that means some stories will resonate with the reader more than others


    Any additional comments?

    Bison tends to write normal people in weird circumstances. I tend to enjoy the one's where the focus is more on the weird circumstance than ones where the focus is on the everyday life. Bison's stories also never give you the big reveal. The why or what. Things happen; normal people react. We never really learn why or what.
