Three-time Hugo Award winner and New York Times bestselling author N. K. Jemisin challenges and delights readers with thought-provoking narratives of destruction, rebirth, and redemption that sharply examine modern society in her first collection of short fiction, which includes never-before-seen stories.

"Marvelous and wide-ranging."-- Los Angeles Times
"Gorgeous" -- NPR Books
"Breathtakingly imaginative and narratively bold."-- Entertainment Weekly

Spirits haunt the flooded streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow South must save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises. And in the Hugo award-nominated short story "The City Born Great," a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis's soul.

Excellent samples of a master’s early work and range

This author is amazing and this collection of her short stories do a few great things. First, you get to see her proofs of concept, seedlings that would later become her amazing books. You trace her growth as a writer and she tried out new ideas and can almost feel the growing confidence she had as she found her voice and wrote stories informed by her interests and background. You also get wonderful and interesting one-offs from a great writer in the vein of Bradbury or King, rather than the epics she typically writes. Lastly you get amazing visions of worlds from a profound imagination, worlds you get to step
into for a half-hour and leave you both satisfied and wanting more.
