Good 'hard science fiction' stories are difficult to find, but with Michael Flynn behind the pen, you'd think they grow on trees. This collection of 10 stories shows how to put the "science" in science fiction and still tell a good story with real characters and intriguing plots. You'll find subjects ranging from time travel to space epic in this one, and Flynn isn't above crossing some genre lines when he needs to. Although some stories are better than others, they're all worth the price of admission. You can also gain some insight into Flynn through his introduction and afterword.
From Library Journal
This collection includes the Hugo Award- nominated title story, in which a time traveler lands in an alternate Pennsylvania, and eight others, most previously published, that are replete with skillfully drawn characters. Flynn (Firestar, LJ 1/96) provides commentary with each story. Highly recommended.
