Zahn frequently poses questions on social issues. This book of short stories, almost novelettes, has some stories that make you think. Cascade Point or The Giftie Gie may have been my favorites of the book.
Giftie Gie points out the disabilities or differences are often used to discriminate when the differences are often self imposed. I really enjoyed the interplay between Neil and Heather. The Final Report on the Lifeline Experiment gave some thought to the ramifications of abortion. Cascade Point made one think about dimensionality.
Overall Zahn satisfied as he always does.
I recommend it.
I'm always shocked when I find an author without a website, particularly a scifi author, however I could not find one for Zahn.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
