There are 15 short stories in this collection, including three never before published anywhere. Of the stories, six are Earth-based, nine are Space-based, all include humans and many of the Aliens in the stories are as human as you or me. While there's good science in the stories, there are also a number of magic realism and dark fantasy stories which reflect my interests/profession in archeology, cross-cultural anthropology, Jungian archetypes and world mythology. The general fiction reader will find that most of the stories are accessible to those who enjoy reading other genres and enjoy quality fiction with different characters, while the devoted SF/Fantasy reader will find stories that aren't the usual "cup of tea" that shows up in the video mass market.
Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author David Brin has said of this collection "Congratulations on the long overdue story collection, Tom! What I find most terrific is your range of topics and styles. You have always been an explorer."
