Journey to the liminal space with acclaimed author and Nebula Award finalist Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam in her debut collection of interconnected stories that span from past to future among the dead and the living: bones of extinct species wander a campground, stalking a group of friends in love with the same woman. The object of their affection seeks solace with a couple in a world with rain that kills. A woman moves away from her repressed home town, only to transform into a man-eating monster when she returns. A robot assassin avenges women ruined by capitalism.
