I received this book as part of Goodread's Giveaways and First Reads.

The short, sci-fi stories contained in this book shuffled between really interesting and engrossing to boring and difficult to follow. Some of the ideas contained within were interesting, such as Sister Sun and Have a Nice Day Pass The Arsenic (the former about time travel, I suppose, and the latter about having children in space). I especially liked Green Season, where lions were involved.

Unfortunately I felt that the poorer stories, such as And The Angels Sang and even Jaguar let the book as a whole down. I also feel that Lorina Stephens' writing style as a whole left something to be desired. I think the book as a whole lacked punch, or a spark that really tied it together.
