An award-winning visionary and true master of worlds and wonders, the man whom author David Brin calls “one of the best prophetic writers of our times,” once again demonstrates the breathtaking scope and startling power of his imagination, transporting listeners across space and time, into the heart of darkness and the soul of madness. From the spine-tingling account of an intergalactic poacher’s rite of passage to an erotic and ultimately uplifting modern fable of inner scars and otherworldly transformation, here are fifteen remarkable tales, including the classic novella The Hemingway Hoax. These are stories that sing with a unique and haunting voice—stories of war’s monsters, of brutal art and lost stars, and a brief, miraculous moment called childhood, when a young girl can actually fly.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A stunner…Rich in characterization and insights into the creative process…The introduction and notes that round out the collection say much about the process of turning ideas into stories—a transformation at which, apparently, Haldeman is still a master.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Enough vision to rock the cosmos…Written with a powerful clarity and a subtle imagination.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Throughout, the richly drawn characters are generally ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. A strong contender for SF collections, this will work in general short story collections as well.” Library Journal
“Impressive…[Haldeman] is at his best when his attention is fully engaged—Hemingway, Vietnam, alienation—and when he allows his own hopes and fears to communicate to the reader.” Kirkus Reviews
