The Philip K. Dick Award-winning debut short story collection from Sarah Pinsker, author of the Nebula Award-winning A Song for a New Day.
Pinsker has shot like a star across the firmament with stories multiply nominated for awards as well as Sturgeon and Nebula award wins.
The baker's dozen stories gathered here (including a new, previously unpublished story) turn listeners into travellers to the past and the future, and explorers of the weirder points of the present.
The journey is the thing as Pinsker weaves music, memory, technology, history, mystery, love, loss and even multiple selves on generation ships and cruise ships, on highways and high seas, in murder houses and treehouses. They feature runaways, fiddle-playing astronauts and retired time travellers. They are weird, wired, hopeful, haunting and deeply human. They are often described as beautiful, but Pinsker also knows that the heart wants what the heart wants, and that is not always right, or easy.
