Science fiction? Fantasy? Neither? It can be hard to tell with some of Karen Joy Fowler's stories. And particularly difficult in this collection! I'd say they all appeal to sf/f readers, though, even if you're pretty certain it's neither.

Most of the stories in this collection were published in the last few years, and there's at least one entirely new one. "What I Didn't See" is, I think, the oldest story in this collection. Or perhaps it was "Standing Room Only", which is my favorite one, even though I'd read it previously.

The perfect gift to give to a friend who doesn't like sf/f (and they're still your friend?!) but does like short stories. Ease them into things.

Then slip them some of her novels.
