Synopsis

An anthology with short stories which each presents a "dangerous vision" (although I would call them "visions for thought").

Review

These thirty-two stories are all excellent in their own ways, but some stand out as superbly excellent. They are Shall the Dust Praise Thee?, Evensong, The Malley System, Carcinoma Angels, and A Toy For Juliette. Go buy this book.
