This huge new collection of the short stories of one of Science Fiction's most beloved and popular writers is sure to please his millions of fans. The volume contains 24 stories, Card's new introductions for each story, and commentary on his life and work.

Like the earlier Maps in A Mirror, this collection is a definitive retrospective of the short fiction career of the writer that The Houston Post called "the best writer science fiction has to offer."

User Review  - RRHowell - LibraryThing

Lots of short stories, some straight SF, some fantasy, some religious (and some a mixture.) Also, some wonderful, and some not so wonderful. But all in all, I think very highly of Orson Scott Card. One of my favorites is "Homeless in Hell." Read full review
