The title story alone is worth the price of the book, though there are two or three others that are really great. I haven't read much of Bass before (only his first collection The Watch), but in The Lives of Rocks there are moments where he gets pretty heavy handed about his message, mainly that of environmental conservatism. Not that that isn't a worthy cause, but it seems to me most of his stories do a good enough job of conveying his beliefs without his having to come out and tell the reader.
