Description or summary of the book: 'A master absurdist...Highly recommended.' -The New York TimesBefore the success of her debut SF-and-fantasy novel All the Birds in the Sky, Charlie Jane Anders was a rising star in SF and fantasy short fiction. Collected in a mini-book format, here-for the first time in print-are six of her quirky, wry, engaging best: In 'The Fermi Paradox Is Our Business Model,' aliens reveal the terrible truth about how humans were created-and why we'll never discover aliens. 'As Good as New' is a brilliant twist on the tale of three wishes, set after the end of the world. 'Intestate' is about a family reunion in which some attendees aren't quite human anymore-but they're still family. 'The Cartography of Sudden Death' demonstrates that when you try to solve a problem with time travel, you now have two problems. 'Six Months, Three Days' is the story of the love affair between a man who can see the one true foreordained future, and a woman who can see all the possible futures. They're both right, and the story won the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novelette. And 'Clover,' exclusively written for this collection, is a coda to All the Birds in the Sky, answering the burning question of what happened to Patricia's cat.
