Thought-provoking, evocative tales. This is an interesting futuristic blend of short stories…I recommend this collection for readers of science fiction and for readers wanting more LGBTQ+ and minority protagonists. 5 Stars

…every bit as wonderful as the first [Dragon Springs & Other Things].
-- Liminal Fiction
…a sterling example of the genre’s flexibility and thought-provoking opportunities. It should be a mainstay in any library strong in speculative works, on the reading lists of anyone attracted to thought-provoking short pieces, and used as discussion material for book clubs interested in engaging subjects about life’s meaning and impact.
