Synopsis

These twelve science fiction stories comprise a wealth of genres, from mystery to science fiction to autobiographical fiction. Included is a Sherlock Holmesian mystery, a Walter Mitty-like escape into the world of software, and a Cthulhu Mythos tale in the Lovecraft tradition. Among the varied plot lines are a tale of book-collecting in the distant future, the story of a gambler who faxes Lady Luck, and a detective's account of his work on a moon of Mars.
