    An incredible collection of short stories

    An incredible collection of short stories, the epub itself is currently free and these are also available free to read on the site. No reason not to give this a give if you lile well written speculative. Also, as someone who read the epub, this had the best organized table of contents I've ever seen. All the more important for a short story collection. Since all of the stories are well written, I'm just highlighting the ones I really enjoyed. * Deriving Life by Elizabeth Bear - A phenomenal spec fic take on grief, bereavement, finding meaning in life and moving. I love how there are no easy answers and the world itself is interesting. * For He Can Creep by Siobhan Carroll - A gripping tale of a cat saving his owner from the devil. The writing and cat centric story carries this one. * Zeitgeber by Greg Egan - An incredible tale regarding health/disability including both personal family reaction and greater societal reaction. How a small number is an inconvenience, a large number is a change but eventually everyone wants a cure and to not deal with difference. As someone who has had insomnia. This story hit me hard. * The Song by Erinn L Kemper - A story about whales, their emotional songs and commercialized whale hunting. The story got under my skin but in a good way. I really like how the whale "fun" facts broke up the story. * Articulated Restraint by Mary Robinette Kowal - A post-apocalyptic astronaut has to decide what really matters. Evem though the entire story is a pool test run, it still is a tense and emotional story. * Blue Morphos in the Garden by Lis Mitchell - An interesting story about choosing they way we die through family and health drama. I was really into this one. * His Footsteps, Through Darkness and Light by Mimi Mondal - I'm a sucker for tales of intense friendship and this was an interesting tale between jinn and the carrier of his lamp. Really enjoyed this one. * More Real Than Him by Silvia Park - I love stories where people try explore robots filling the needs of humans, even the more abstract ones. The depiction of the pettiness and humanity of the characters was well done. * The Hundredth House Had No Walls by Laurie Penny - Probably one of the more interesting stories that I've read about romantic relationships in a long time. * The Touches by Brenda Peynado - I really loved the concept of people locked up from disease so they live in a virtual world. How the virtual world provides human contact and yet not enough. Mix in a child on the way and its an interesting, emotional tale of what matters most. * Knowledgeable Creatures By Christopher Rowe - A noir detective story given fresh life as the grizzled, ex-cop protagonist is a talking dog. In fact the entire world is filled with animals and remembers the perks/drawbacks of their biology. This one was gripping and fun. * As the Last I May Know by S.L. Huang - An interesting premise where in order to use fantasy nukes the president must kill a child with his own hands. The story is from the girl's perspective as she wavers from faith to fear. I also like the poetry parts, they don't feel shoehorned in at all.
