I got this book for the Diana Gabaldon story about Jerry Mackenzie, Roger's dad. Read it after An Echo in the Bone. It tells of what happened to Rogers parents.
But it is a great selection of 17 short stories, from different genres: sci-fi, horror, historical; paranormal. Take time to read this book one story at a time - they grip you and linger. Isn't that the best recommendation for a story, if it stays with you for a while? I really enjoyed reading most of these stories and some new authors.
