Small Windows is a collection of flash science fiction stories that provide glimpses into various states of the human condition on far-flung planets and in different times. Each tale is a brief exploration of what it means to experience life—an assortment of tiny moments captured from across the cosmos that underline the commonality of the emotions we all share, whether human, silicate, android, alien, or animal. The stories in this book offer a playful look at first contact, fear, loneliness, and isolation but also take a deep dive into love, laughter, differing perspectives, and our communal experience of what it means to be alive.
