Eight astonishing stories of science fiction and fantasy. Stories of extraordinary people from Mars and the moons of Jupiter. Stories of disabled people and mutated, genetically altered people. Of people who face terrible threats and challenges but who never give up.
A mysterious pod crashes into the fragile community of one isolated world. A belligerent overlord threatens another.
Here also are tales of extraordinary animals, half animals and fantastic creatures. Of talking alligators and magical birds. Humorous tales and touching tales.

All of the stories except one have been previously published, such as in the Aurora Award nominated anthology Strange Bedfellows. Most have also been published as standalone e-book short reads. One, "Europa Spring," was formerly a Kindle Short Reads bestseller.
