Rob Oxley hails from Lufkin, Texas. He lives with a domesticated red skunk, some emus, the cremated remains of a goldfish, and a good woman who attempts to make sense of it all. When he’s not fishing or writing short fiction, he frequents “work” from time to time: a materials testing company for which he heroically feints qualification.
This science fiction anthology features eleven original short stories. Each story is accompanied by a black-and-white illustration. The stories span the breadth of the science-fiction genre, from cyberpunk to alien contact to genetic manipulation to social dystopia. Some investigate the "hard" technological side of SF, while others explore the genre's "softer" social implications.
