This was surprisingly awesome. I liked the campy cover and picked it up cheap or free (can't remember which), and then shelved it. I picked it up the other day and could barely put it down - it's got smart, interesting characters and clever time-and-space-twisting plotlines, told in a dreamy, poetic style. The second novella is interesting from an animal rights / anti-speciesist point of view, too - it features empathy and communication across species lines.
