I've been the lead editor on this anthology, and writing the official book summary that accompanies its ISBN today has had me vibrating with excitement. The collection (with TEN never-before-published new pieces! TEN! That's 14 in base-6) is speculative fiction at its best: vibrant, beautifully textured, plenty weird but always for the sake of providing greater depth and meaning to what it is to be human, never merely for a joke at the audience's expense. This is multiverses with empathy, and I am in love with it.
