about

Recommended by Publishers Weekly ("This is overall a strong collection . . . make it worth reading.")
Twenty-three science fiction and fantasy authors capture the depth and breadth of caring and of giving and delve into the complex world of caregivers--a segment of our population that is often taken for granted.

The world of caregivers and unsung heroes, the province of ghosts . . .

WHO ARE THE SUM OF US?

Children giving care. Dogs and cats giving care. Sidekicks, military, monks, ghosts, robots. Even aliens. Care given by lovers, family, professionals. Caregivers who can no longer give. Caregivers who make the decision not to give, and the costs and the consequences that follow. Bound to us by invisible bonds, but with lives, dreams, and passions of their own.

These are their stories: The Oracle and The Warlord, The Dunschemin Retirement Home for Repentant Supervillians, Good-bye is That Time between Now and Forever, Blinders, Am I Not a Proud Outlier?, Things that Creep and Bind, Dreams as Fragile as Glass, Number One Draft Pick, and many more.

Twenty-three science fiction and fantasy authors explore the depth and breadth of caring and of giving. They find insight, joy, devastation, and heroism in grand sweeps and in tiny niches. And, like wasps made of stinging words, there is pain in giving, and in working one's way through to the light. Our lives and relationships are complex. But in the end, there is hope, and there is love.
