Reviews

These forty-one powerful stories cover Shiner's career across three decades and multiple genres, showcasing hard-edged, often political genre fiction at its finest. The oft-reprinted 'The War at Home, ' 'The Circle, ' and 'Till Human Voices Wake Us' remain worth reading, but the less familiar tales really make this collection stand out...Shiner never fails to astound, and this collection highlights everything that makes him one of today's best storytellers. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
