She introduces each story with background details of her narrative intention and creative process, giving extra resonance to the tales themselves.
These were most successful stories for me:
- The Time Travel Club (since planets move in their orbits, moving through time might land you in empty space--or within a solid object: fabulous premise)
- Six Months, Three Days (the hellish choices faced by two people who can see into the future)
- Love Might be Too Strong a Word (fascinating exploration of romance and sexuality on a generation ship where humans have six distinct genders: my favorite overall)
- Ghost Champaigne (about a woman haunted by the ghost of her future)
- Power Couple (heartbreaking story about a couple using cryogenic suspension to cheat time--sort of)
- A Temporary Embarrassment in Spacetime (my favorite of her zany stories)
