A definitely good collection of stories. The first, and 'title track' if you like is the clear standout in this book, no question. In fact, it is the last few that I generally didn't like as much as the rest, but on the whole this collection is well above average, and easily above 3.60, let alone 3.50.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0965590194, Hardcover)

This is a handsome, limited edition collection of the best work by one of the finest short fiction writers in science fiction. There are 14 stories in all, ranging from straight SF to tales that stray into the fantasy and horror genres. Of special note is the title story, which earned the 1996 Hugo Award for Best Novelette and a 1996 Nebula Award nomination. But all of the stories are excellent in their own right. An insightful forward by James Patrick Kelly's friend and sometimes collaborator John Kessel (Corrupting Dr. Nice) leads off the collection and explores Kelly's somewhat underrated career.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:22:50 -0400)

Stories in futuristic settings. In Pogrom, social tensions between the old and the young who are obliged to support them leads to armed conflict, while Faith is on a human who can talk to plants.
