About this title


A collection of Strete's great work, including ones described as "quite brilliant" from a "major talent" by Kirkus Reviews. Also includes collaborations with Jim Morrison (of the Doors) and Michael Bishop. "On the Way Home, about American Indians (Strete is one) returning after a stint in the army, is grittily unsettling. There's the achingly sad tale of an Indian sorcerer/guardian who invokes aliens from the stars to lift the burden of the white man's oppression. Also: a short, wry, powerful evocation of Old Woman Mountain. As before, then, the Indian stories are stronger than the more standard sf or fantasy. But a raw, satirical edge enlivens the best of the more orthodox pieces: a hilarious stranded astronaut yarn; a future where clothing is obscene; a ghost in a police computer; the dreams rocks dream over the eons. ... Strete, then, is still blazing away in all directions—and scoring an uncomfortable number of hits: strong work from a gifted writer." —Kirkus Reviews
