Recommends it for: Mystery readers, fans of fine writing
One of the finest writers ever to grace the fields of science-fiction and mysteries, Kate Wilhelm superbly combines the two genres in five long stories, among them the outstanding 'The Gorgon Field.'

Really good short stories. This series constantly surprises me. Sometimes there is a sci-fi type theme, other times regular detective work. Constance and Charlie are quite diverse. Love their cats also!
