Stars that Fall to Earth: And Other Science-Fiction Tales of the Macabre, the Humoresque, and the Human by Jeremy Balfour

This present volume of eight stories and three novellas has characters that instantly grab the imagination and moves forward without mincing words. And most of all, this work stands as unique even in its genre of the fantastic, as each tale relates original narratives of unpredictable intrigue. They are unique for their whimsy and wit, and also for the author’s old device of injecting poetry into science-fiction.
