Five Goofy Science Fiction Stories by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Readers know Hugo-award winner Kristine Kathryn Rusch for her serious, deeply thought-out science fiction. But the former editor of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction also has a silly side, one in evidence in the five stories in this collection. Only one story, "Paparazzi of Dreams," is at all serious, although it has a very skewed perspective of the world. "Going Native," pretends to seriousness, like so many news stories do. In "Advisors at Naptime," a child saves the world only because she wants a nap. In "The One That Got Away," poker players thwart an alien invasion, and in Rusch's popular "What Fluffy Knew," a cat does. Rusch takes her chosen genre seriously most of the time. But fortunately for readers, she doesn't take it seriously all of the time.
