The Strange Redemption of Sister Mary Ann
Nebula award nominated Science Fiction short stories of galactic war and faith. Of death that comes not to one alone, but gets rather crowded. Of trying to earn money for Friday night's date, and maybe selling your soul. Of standing between incoming missiles and American, and maybe the very gates of hell. For lighter stuff there's the magic of a kid's road trip and two ghosts alone in the world ... except for a camel.
