       Additional Information  
      This collection, with stories ranging from flash fiction to novelettes, is about people dealing with life or death situations in unique and moving ways. Piers Anthony, author of the hugely popular Xanth series, recently commented in his FeBlueberry 2005 newsletter that "(Banks) has marvelous figures of speech; I don't think I've seen it as thick and apt since the early career of Roger Zelazny..." Author C.D. Moulton says of the book, "The subject matter is both varied and consistent. The style is captivating. Unlike most things Iíve reviewed, I wanted to read past the first page...Truth be told, I wanted to read past the end of the book." Author Angela Hooper says, "(This is a) brilliant collection of short stories of life and death, each one very different and individual, a separate story adding to make a truly awesome book."
