This is a wonderful set of short stories from Connie Willis. Even I have read some of them before (although I cannot pinpoint when or where) it was just the same, as I enjoyed as much or even more than the first time.

We have here a pure Willis style and themes (stories full of real human people, sentiments, warning on censorship and Political Correctness..), and towering above them all the Human Issues, irrespective of which era/time the story is taking place. And, of course, that is what I like more than anything in her.

All the tales here are worthy, but I have my preferences:

- The Last of the Winnebagos
- Even the Queen
- Spice Pogrom
- Winter's Tale
- Jack
- At the Rialto

About this last one, I can say that I have not read anything half fun about explaining/introducing Quantum Physics.

Very enjoyable and satisfying.
