Some longer ones - Fear No More, Falls the Shadow and A Matter of Time are straightforward SF adventure stories, set in the near future. Others - Carry Me Home and Renewal are adventures in less conventional forms. Style of the Time is set in the past- Visiting the Millionaire in the far-distant future. There Was An Old Lady and To Where You Came From have serious messages- others - In a Name, Eradicating stegobium paniceum from pulse-based animal feeds and If There Were No If There Were No Benny Cemoli, for example - are more whimsical. Some shorter pieces like An Exercise in Causality and Six Particles in Search of an Observer are experimental in style. There is also a Ghost Story- and The Fast is a brief excursion into the Gothick. Finally there are sketches. Birth was written for performance as a short play- and Murder In Space can be adapted for staging at a murder-mystery dinner party.
