Acclaimed for such novels as The Doomsday Book and To Say Nothing of the Dog, Connie Willis has likewise been recognized as one of science fiction's most innovative short story writers, placing believable characters in absurd and often humorous situations. Each of the ten tales in this anthology won the Hugo or Nebula Awards—and in some cases, both—and all feature afterwords by the author. In Willis's unpredictable universe, Emily Dickinson defeats an alien invasion ("The Soul Selects Her Own Society"), a photojournalist in near-future Arizona laments the extinction of all dogs ("The Last of the Winnebagos"), and in "Fire Watch," a contemporary historian travels back in time to London during the Blitz.
