We hope this volume will be one you'll keep on a bedside table. Or pop into a travel bag. We want you to use this anthology as a companion for those times when you have a half-hour to fill and don't... More > want to muck about with the internet. Not one of these stories will take you more than ten minutes to read. But they will take you around the planet at warp speed. You may find yourself on a galactic cruise from your office, park bench, or seat on the 9.35 local. Some of what you'll read in here is laugh-out-loud funny. You may go Snork! and get Looks on the commuter train. Some of the stories and poems in here will probably make you want to cry. Life on Earth can be dark, sometimes. We're hoping you can take the rough with the smooth. Some of these stories might introduce you to the kind of people you've wondered about, but never met.< Less
