Two dozen tales of far away worlds, future Earths, a reality that lives beside our own. From childhood dreams that haunt adulthood to alien creatures trapped in a never-ending cycle to visions of a future among the stars, the stories in this collection span the realms of the fantastic but with a core of humanity. You'll find hope in dystopia, despair in perfection and one or two bug-eyed aliens. Includes "Fire.Escape." (shortlisted for the Sir Julius Vogel award for best novella, 2013) and "The Interview" - both part of the Andersson Dexter universe.
