Nancy Kress, winner of multiple awards for her science fiction and fantasy, ranges through space and time in this stunning collection. Anne Boleyn is snatched from her time stream--with unexpected consequences for two worlds. A far-future spaceship brings religion to a planet that already harbors shocking natives. People genetically engineered to never need to sleep clash with those who do. A scientific expedition to the center of the galaxy discovers more than anyone bargained for. A woman finds that ''people like us'' does not mean what she thinks it does.Praised for both her hard SF and her complex characters, Nancy Kress brings a unique viewpoint to twenty-one stories, the best of a long and varied career that has won her five Nebulas, two Hugos, a Sturgeon, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award.Table of Contents:IntroductionAnd Wild For to HoldOut of All Them Bright StarsPathwaysDancing on AirUnto the DaughtersLaws of SurvivalSomeone To Watch Over MeFlowers of Aulit PrisonPrice of OrangesBy Fools Like MeCasey's EmpireShiva in ShadowGrant Us This DayKindness of StrangersEnd GameMy Mother, DancingTrinityPeople Like UsEvolutionMargin of ErrorBeggars in Spain

finest collection of short stories i've ever read, and there have been bunches. plus just for spice a copy signed by the author. #560, of 1000, but still. and esp appreciated her trailing paragraph for each story, many of them classics in the history of sf. so, yeah, liked very much, recommended to other sf addicts.
