Beyond the Rift

From the award-winning author of the Rifters trilogy (Starfish; Maelstrom; Behemoth) comes a collection that demonstrates Watts's skill with short fiction. In addition to the Hugo Award-winning "The Island," the Prix Aurora Award-winning "A Niche," and the Shirley Jackson Award-winning "The Things," the volume also includes a metaphysical puzzle story about life after death ("The Second Coming of Jasmine Fitzgerald") and eight other evocative tales.
VERDICT This is a good choice for fans of the author or those who appreciate a good sf short story.
