My Science Fiction
Bold ideas combined with down-to-earth characters mark this collection from one of the unsung innovators of the sf short story. Set in both the near and far reaches of time and space, Steve Carper's stories defy conventional classification. Read them as part science fiction, part fantasy, part mainstream and slipstream. They gambol easily among the classic themes of the field from dinosaurs to space travel to wish-giving witches, transforming each into something new, unexpected, and delightful in a style so vivid that it has been called "worddrunk".
