  • Description

    Before the success of her debut SF-and-fantasy novel ‚  All the Birds in the Sky, ‚  Charlie Jane Anders was a rising star in SF and fantasy short fiction. Collected in a mini-book format, here--for the first time in print--are six of her quirky, wry, engaging best:

    In "The Fermi Paradox Is Our Business Model," aliens reveal the terrible truth about how humans were created--and why we'll never discover aliens.

    "As Good as New" is a brilliant twist on the tale of three wishes, set after the end of the world.

    "Intestate" is about a family reunion in which some attendees aren't quite human anymore--but they're still family.

    "The Cartography of Sudden Death" demonstrates that when you try to solve a problem with time travel, you now have two problems.

    "Six Months, Three Days" is the story of the love affair between a man who can see the one true foreordained future, and a woman who can see all the possible futures. They're both right, and the story won the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novelette.

    And "Clover," exclusively written for this collection, is a coda to ‚  All the Birds in the Sky, ‚  answering the burning question of what happened to Patricia's cat.
