[These notes were made in 1991:]. It's rather unfair, I suppose, to base one's assessment of an author (a fantasy novelist) on a book of short stories, largely science fiction. It may well represent the flotsam and jetsam of an over-productive imagination. But I find, based on this book, that I am unable to acquiesce in a friend's very high recommendation. It's not that Moon lacks either scope or detail in her imaginary worlds - even within the confines of short stories, she manages to set them ...more

This collection of short stories is a mixed bag. Some quite good, others mpt so much. the last story, set in the Gird/Paksennarrian fantasy uuniverrse is probably the bbest of the lot. "ABSs in Zero-G"" was an interesting exxploration of emergemcy medical work in space , altough gravity is hardly the biggestt problem

I do enjoy short story collections. The author is already one of my favorites for her science fiction novels and her shorter works were mostly as good as the longer.
