A Different Approach to Science Fiction

Do you like science fiction? This book could be a combination of science fiction and short stories. There are 2 big poems in it and many stories talk about a different type of the end of the world-one with a six-year-old girl ruling all ('Muffin Explains Teleology to the World at Large') and two siblings that never expected the end to go on forever ('The Book of Days'). Many stories are just potporri. There are lots of different types of stories to satisfy lots of different tastes. The weakest story is that of Monica Hughes herself ('The Stranger')- but you could hardly say it was bad. My personal favorite was 'A Wish Named Arnold' in which a girl named Margurite finds a "wish" in a brass unscrewable egg. They develop a close relationship, as Margurite is able to 'talk' to Arnold. They get so close that Margurite soon forgets he is a wish-and leaves him in a resturaunt. To find out the end, buy this awesome 5 star book-or check it out at your librairy. It is an awesome book that will satisfy your every desire for knowledge and a good book.
