This book contains 19 short speculative/SF stories that include everything from family, semi-sentient AI (Fluffy the cleaning bot is absolutely adorable!), odd-ball aliens, space exploration, clones, assassins, alien invasions, zombie fungi, to a whole range of other strange and wonderful combinations and original ideas.  The writing is beautiful and concise, the stories original and thought-provoking.  The stories contained in this book are also more uplifting and hopeful than many current SF/F stories out there.  I enjoyed this book a great deal.
