Omschrijving

Recommended by Publishers Weekly
The greatest gift to us is caring.

What would the world be like without someone to care for or to care with? Would love survive if we don't care?

From the world of twenty-three science fiction and fantasy authors comes a world that can be funny, heartwarming, strange, or sad. Or not what we expect.

How can a henchman keep up with a mischievous retired supervillain? Can a dog help a hockey player score again? Will an odd couple with a zany sense of adventure and diminished capabilities survive an earthquake? Where does a stray cat go to find love every night? What secret does a pious monk have with a cargo of sleeping human? Will terrorism in space take out a young apprentice and a blind welder? What does an oracle tell a lover about her final days? Can a "heart of gold" prevent a soldier from crossing the enemy line with the governor's children? These, and many more.

Featuring Original Stories by Colleen Anderson, Charlotte Ashley, Brenda Cooper, Ian Creasey, A.M.

Praise for The Sum of Us

"[A] strong collection . . . make it worth reading."Publishers Weekly

". . . definitely consider buying a copy, if not for yourself, then for someone who is serving as a caretaker. Hopefully the stories can serve as comfort to them. At the very least, it should make us all appreciate caretakers for all they do." Lightspeed Magazine

"This anthology was one of the better ones, with no 'howlers' and several thought provoking page-turners."Tangent
